CFIA S&A Group – Summary of AGM 29 November 2013
The Annual General Meeting of the S&A Group of the CFIA was held on November 29, 2013 at the Marconi Centre, Ottawa from 11:30 Noon to 1:00 P.M. Our gratitude to the efforts done by the NCR organising committee (Katie Oppen, Washington Gwayumba, and Hussien Bashah), as the turnout was the largest we have ever had for an AGM. In excess of 75 members from the National Capital Region joined the nine executives for a very energetic and informative meeting.
The meeting started with an introduction of the executives by President of the group, Eric Jackson. This was followed by a review of the minutes of the past meeting, financial and election reports. This year we had three reports presented by: Katie Oppen (PIPSC-AGM’s resolutions), Suzelle Brosseau (update on the negotiation for current collective agreement), Bernard Dussault (options to manage the severance pay). A three course meal was served during the event. There was a positive environment during the meeting; many members participated in a constructive discussion on how to support PIPSC to be a strong organization, and ways to strengthen the union’s logistics and strategies during this challenging time.
