Annual PTPDE Meeting-Wednesday June 23, 2021 at 6:30pm

Dear Saleem and Sabira,

The Annual PTPDE Meeting on Wednesday June 23, 2021 at 6:30pm will be on ZOOM this year. You may read the nomination slate of officers and board at THIS LINK and vote online or at the Zoom meeting. We will not have our normal annual dinner, meeting and program this year.

The purpose of People to People International is to enhance international understanding and friendship through educational, cultural and humanitarian activities involving the exchange of ideas and experiences directly among people of different countries and diverse cultures. PTPI and the Delaware Chapter will cooperate with any organizations which are of similar nature and purpose.

To achieve the goal of international understanding, People to People International and the Delaware Chapter will promote contact between peoples of every nation through many channels of communication. People of all ages and professions are invited to participate in these programs.

Once a year PTPDE has an annual meeting where a slate of officers and board members may be nominated and voted upon. All nominees, officers, and committee chairpersons must be members in good standing in PTPDE. Each member has one vote, the majority vote of those present and who send in their votes determines if the slate is accepted.

At all meetings of the chapter, total membership present shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. The fiscal year of our chapter shall begin on July 1st. Upon completion of the fiscal year, a financial statement and the PTPDE Annual Report shall be made available to the membership and PTPI World Headquarters.

The president or co-presidents are the principal officers of the chapter and shall preside at all meetings, shall have general supervision of the affairs of the chapter, shall perform such other duties as may be properly required, shall also be an ex-officio member of all committees and shall submit the Chapter President’s Annual Report to PTPI World Headquarters.

The vice-president shall be designated by the Board of Directors and shall exercise the functions of the president during his/her absence or disability. The vice president shall have such powers and discharge such duties as may be assigned by the president, such as acting as overseer of various chairpersons and their committees.

The secretary shall be responsible for keeping minutes at each meeting and forwarding copies of the annual meeting to International Headquarters. The secretary also sends out the agendas, minutes, and other important notices.

The treasurer shall be responsible for membership dues and the payment of dues to World Headquarters, shall collect, administer and expend such other funds as may be received from time to time, shall make regular financial reports to the membership and to PTPI World Headquarters as requested, and shall act as overseer of the financial activities of all committees established by the chapter.
