Annual Meeting and Financial Statement Information
Like most all of our plans and goals for 2020, the GAI needs to restructure its end of-the-year activities as a result of the impact of COVID-19. The health and safety of everyone who engages with the GAI is our first and foremost priority, and the GAI continues to diligently abide by the State of Minnesota guidelines and regulations. Therefore, we wanted to share some changes to our plans about reporting on 2019–2020 and for sustaining our mission in 2021.
• Annual Meeting of the Membership: As Covid regulations prohibit large, public gatherings, we will instead be available to connect with you individually to answer any questions and share relevant financial and budget data. To schedule a phone call, video conference, or safely distanced in-person meeting with the Executive Director and/or a board member, please contact the GAI office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 651.222.7027.
• Financial Statements: The 2019–2020 audited financial statements and 990s will be posted on our website, or you can contact the office to request a copy be mailed to you. Link to financial statements Link to form 990
• Board Elections and Appointments: The GAI Board of Directors will not be organizing a board election in 2020. Current members with terms expiring in December have all agreed to a one-year extension of their terms. This decision was made in order to ensure continuity of operations and to spare the GAI the expense of an election during this time of financial hardship for small businesses and non-profit organizations.
Appointed board positions for 2021 are, however, still available. We welcome anyone interested in applying for the board via appointment to contact the office for further information. Applications are due November 20, 2020. To support our ongoing work in the advancement of the German Dual Education Model as well as language learning, candidates with a professional background in German education or workforce development are especially encouraged to apply.
