GC2020 E-Meeting updates

By Ardith Van Riper

     This year, the General Council's annual meeting convenes on December 5 in a virtual setting to ensure the safety and well-being of all tribal members during the pandemic.  Plans are in place to assist Ho-Chunk Nation tribal members with the necessary tools and experience to make the event productive.

     That plan includes a Mock E-Meeting scheduled for Friday, November 20, and currently scheduled to run from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM.

     Tribal members experience navigating the virtual meeting during the Mock E-Meeting. Participants practice logging in, raising your hand, using the microphone, and voting.

     Resolutions for the December 5 event are due Thursday, November 5.  Materials can be submitted via email to gcb@ho-chunk.com or mailed to the Office of General Council, 17374 HWY 21-Suite 2 Tomah, WI 54660.

     Additional information regarding General Council 2020 and the Mock E-Meeting can be found on the General Council Facebook Page, the Ho-Chunk Nation website, and in the Hocak Worak.

     The enrolled Ho-Chunk Nation elders should watch their mailboxes for additional information from the Office of General Council.  If needed, contact the Enrollment Division at 715-284-7824 to update your mailing address as soon as possible.
