As required by law, the Towers on the Park Condominium conducts an Annual Meeting to update owners on projects, hold by-law-required elections and perform other activities that are essential to the condominium's operations.
Having struggled to achieve quorum when conducting these meetings in person and seeing the benefits of adopting a virtual meeting format for their Annual Meeting over the past few years, the Towers on the Park Condominium team decided to hold their Annual Meeting virtually once again for 2022. However, frustrated with inefficient meetings, long turnaround times and finding the process of running their Annual Meeting stressful overall, the team concluded that they would need to adopt a full-service solution that could accommodate the dynamic nature of their meeting this time around.
Aware of the pain points and eager to streamline their Annual Meeting experience, Towers on the Park Condominium, Board President Greta Pryor began her search for a suitable, full-service virtual meeting solution for their upcoming meeting.
Quickly into her search for a suitable solution, Greta came across GetQuorum.
Impressed by what she saw, Greta was eager to learn more about their full-service virtual meeting solution and decided to reach out to the GetQuorum team to learn more. And after attending an introductory call and being walked through the GetQuorum platform, she was impressed by what she saw.
