For the Online District Council meeting on 2021-09-23, proxies will not be used.

Proxies play a key part in the success of business meetings at the District, Regional and International business meetings. Proxies are the mechanism by which clubs can ensure their voice is heard in decisions made.

Proxies count towards establishing quorum. Each club is entitled to two votes at each District Council meeting. One vote is held by the club president, the other by the VP Education. Each district officer has one vote.
