About The Event


The modality of the assembly is hybrid: the physical location is in Leacock 219, and the assembly will be streamed over Zoom.

We strongly encourage everyone to attend in person if possible. In-person attendance helps to build a greater sense of solidarity through direct interactions and meaningful conversations before, during, and after the meeting.

Please only join by Zoom if you are on Macdonald campus or out of town, have health-related concerns, caregiving responsibilities, or experience other challenges. Thank you for helping us build a strong union. And don't forget - dinner is on us!

The General Assembly is the highest decision-making body of our Union. All AGSEM members are welcome to attend! You are a union member if you have either worked as a TA or an Invigilator within the last 12 months.

Registration to the assembly is necessary to be able to vote, whether you attend in person or online.  If a secret ballot needs to happen, the ballot will be sent to your email to everyone who is present in the meeting at the time of the vote, in accordance with labour law.

Dinner will be served. Please indicate whether you plan to attend in person or online, and whether you have any dietary restrictions.

If you have not already, please make sure to sign your AGSEM membership form:

The meeting information and agenda will be sent before the meeting to those who have registered. We will follow up with registrants for whom we do not have a signed AGSEM membership form.
