NOVEMBER 2nd and 3rd, 2018

This year's AGM will be held November 2 and 3 at the Hilton Lac Leamy. 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 Network, exchange ideas and information.

A Group delegate is a signed 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.

Any member of the CS Group who is interested in being a delegate is asked to complete the application form http://www.pipsc.ca/portal/page/portal/website/groups/cs/agm-prereg  for the PIPSC 2018 AGM.

The deadline for submitting applications will be Friday, June 1, 2018 at noon Ottawa time.

On the form, you are 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

The 2018 PIPSC AGM announcement is posted on the PIPSC Web site and can be found at the http://www.pipsc.ca/about/governance/agm/2018/notice

The final list of CS Group Delegates will be submitted to PIPSC by June 15, 2018.

Successful candidates will be contacted directly by PIPSC so you can complete the final online registration.
