Committee Nominations Are Now Open!

Nominations for various committees are now open. Committee work is a big part of how our local functions. Members of these committees adjudicate funds, reach out and mobilize members regarding various issues faced by the local, conduct research, ensure the implementation of the CA, attend conferences and report back, build alliances and solidarity with different groups on- and off-campus, and much more.These committees offer exciting ways to get involved in your local, meet wonderful people, and do great work within the community. The details of the work and the allocated honoraria can be found on the committees page (and also in our bylaws).

Please send your nominations to VP Unit 1 at by 6 pm on March 15, 2016. The voting will take place at the AGM and the result will be announced shortly after. Feel free to include a 150 word bio outlining why you should be elected to this position. Although these are not necessary for your nomination, they will be distributed to the members at the AGM so they can make an informed decision.

Looking forward to working together!
