Being a member of the SH group executive

Joining our Health Services (SH) Executive is an excellent opportunity to share in the issues and concerns of our membership and represent your occupational group in their concerns.

We meet 5 times a year usually in central Canada.

The Group Executive can establish committees as necessary, with terms of reference and membership to be decided by the Group Executive. These committees are tasked to work on specific issues affecting SH members and report back to the group executive. More information about the group and the executive can be found at Health Services (SH) Group

Our meetings are usually held on Saturdays. If you work the day of the meeting the Institute will reimburse your salary. Salary reimbursement will also be available if you need time to travel to the meeting.

Your expenses for travel and accommodation are covered by PIPSC travel policy. You can find more information at Member Tools - Forms

PIPSC also has a Union & Family Life Balance policy. Under this policy executive members can be entitled to a day off with pay for every meeting if they stay the Saturday night of the meeting.

Again, it's a great team of health professionals representing all parts of Canada and all of our SH groups working in a collaborative team approach to the betterment of our membership!

You will be assisted and supported in your new roles and responsibilities. The first meeting of the group executive in 2018 is January 20.
