Ciao a tutti -

As a current member of the Dante Alighieri Society of Washington, this is your official notice that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, May 13.   It will be held online, using Zoom as the meeting platform (see comments below).  

The Agenda for the meeting consists of the President's, Treasurer's and Language School reports.  These will be sent out to you before the meeting.  You will have the opportunity during the meeting to ask questions and provide feedback about these reports and about the Society as a whole.

The other regular agenda item at the AGM is the election of officers for the 2020-2021 Program Year.  The Nominating Committee - Carol DeMatteis, and Nancy MacDonald - have put forth this slate of Candidates for you to vote on during the meeting:

Joyce Ramee, President

Bruce Leone, Vice President
John Steedman, Secretary
Harry Reinert, Treasurer

Domenico Minotti
Houghton Lee
Janet Lenart
Robert DeCicco
Christina McDonald
Andrea Aldrich

According to our bylaws, members can nominate additional candidates for the Board, including themselves.  If you would like to do so, please send an email to the Nominating Committee at

There are several pieces of important business we would like to discuss at this meeting, besides the annual reports and the annual election of the slate of Board and Officers.   These concern issues of ongoing communication by email, online voting and proposed future bylaws changes. 

Please plan to be there at the Zoom AGM if possible.

On the day before the meeting, we will send you an email which will include a URL link.  We will resend the link the day of the meeting.  Just click on the link and Zoom will download a piece of temporary software to allow you access to the meeting.  

If the address you had previously given us for email communication, the one this email was sent to, is not the email  address you would like us to send the ZOOM invitation link to, please send us the correct address at  You can send the email addresses of other family members, if they will be attending online from a different device.

Please take care of yourself during these stressful days.  Statemi bene!

I look forward to seeing many of you again, even if only virtually.

Dan DeMatteis,
President, Dante Alighieri Society of Washington
