2013 PIPSC AGM – Call for CS Delegates
PIPSC 94th ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM)
NOVEMBER 8th and 9th, 2013
This year's AGM will be held November 8th and 9th at the Delta Ottawa City Centre. The AGM is a gathering of the full membership of PIPSC as represented by delegates whose purpose is to review and set the policy direction of the Institute. It is a convention, conducted under parliamentary rules, where issues are presented, debated and voted upon by the delegates. Delegates to the AGM represent the Board of Directors, bargaining groups, and regional bodies that form the PIPSC organization.
At the AGM, PIPSC members determine how our union will be directed to proceed in the following year. Institute policy is set, monthly dues are determined, and the costs of running the organization are reviewed. In addition to planning and organizing, the AGM also provides the best opportunity for delegates of all Groups in PIPSC to meet as a whole and exchange ideas and information.
A Group delegate is an ordinary member who volunteers to participate as a representative of the Group; the member must be accepted by that Group's Executive to act as a delegate on the Group's behalf. Although we are asking all CS's to consider being delegates, we are limited to the number we can accept as delegates, according to PIPSC by-laws.
All CS Group members attending the PIPSC National AGM are reminded of the CS Group meeting on Thursday evening from 7pm to 9pm. Members attending as CS Delegates are reminded that this function is required in addition to the 2 full AGM days ending Saturday 5pm; please make your travel arrangements with this in mind.
Let me remind you that this is your union. The policies it makes and the direction it takes on any issue are in direct response to membership demands. This is your opportunity to voice an opinion and to vote on the issues. If you want to make a difference and you want to see change, then speak out where and when it counts: at your AGM.
Any member of the CS Group who is interested in being a delegate is asked to fill the on-line form by June 15th, 2013, noon ;
NO LATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
On the form, you will be asked to enter the reasons you wish to be a delegate. We will select delegates based on the information provided, using criteria such as the following:
- Regional representation
- Departmental representation
- Participation in Group Activities
- Participation in Regional Activities
