General Membership Meeting 2012 and Other Updates

April 5th, 2012

Hello all! The last General Membership Meeting for the 2011/2012 year was Tuesday, April 3rd. Thank you to all who attended! All of those who did not attend missed out on some great pizza!

The General Membership Meeting Minutes have been posted to the website. You can find them on the “Agendas and Minutes” page, or by clicking here. For those who did not attend, and do not wish to read the minutes, the major updates are as follows:

The new Executive has been elected for the 2012/2013 year. Their members are:

President: Scott Miller
Vice President: Patrick Gauthier
Secretary-Treasurer: Li Yu
Recording Secretary: Krish Homagain

Chief Steward: Brendon Johnson

Hello again to the returning Executive Committee members, and welcome to the new ones! Here’s hoping for a great new academic year, and that those who are leaving (Executive and local members both) do well on whichever path life takes them.

The other major piece of news from the GMM is regarding the local finances: in summary, the Trustees Audit will not occur until around the end of May/beginning of June, due to complications with changing the local’s fiscal year to match the academic year. For further information, check out the minutes.

I would also like to announce the winners of the Winter Professional Development Bursary. They are:

Kevin Montroy, who attended the MBA Games 2012
Peter Binsted, who attended the MRS Fall 2011
Kathy Kortes-Miller, who attended the Interprofessional Education Conference

Congratulations to the recipients! Hopefully the conferences were enlightening. I would also like to remind members that the deadline for the Spring/Summer Professional Development Bursary is August 1, so if you will be attending a conference prior to that date, make sure to download the application and submit it!

Finally, I would also like to thank the members of CUPE Local 3905: you all have been great to work for, and for those that I have interacted with regarding local business, have treated me courteously. With the end of the academic year comes the end of my employment, and I have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to work with you all. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

General Membership Meeting – February 2010

February 23rd, 2010

Hi Everyone, we will be holding a general membership meeting Wednesday February 14th, 2010 in RB 1021. I sent out two mass emails out to everyone a week before the meeting and another one day before the meeting. It seems there are email issues though and everyone may not have received an email. I am talking with TSC about it. Hope to see you at the meeting.

Ron Berg, President, CUPE 3905
