About The Event
Our General Assembly is on Monday, November 16th at 5:30pm, online. We have moved it three weeks to give additional time for people to self-nominate for elected positions.
The AGSEM General Assembly is the highest decision-making body of our Union and you are a member if you have worked as a TA within the last 12 months, an Invigilator within the past 18 months (April 30, 2019-present), or have signed a union card as an academic support worker as part of the AGSEM Unionization Drive.
Registration is necessary to attend the meeting, and the meeting information and agenda will be sent to those who register in advance. Registration will be open until November 15th at 5:30PM, 24hrs in advance of the meeting. We will follow up with registrants for whom we do not have a signed AGSEM membership form.
Please find the working agenda below and here:

You are also invited to submit any topic of discussion or motion to adopt that you wish, simply by emailing the chair at firstname.lastname@example.org, up to 24 hours before the start of the meeting.
AGSEM members in good standing can run for any role: President, Secretary-Treasurer, Grievance Officer (2), Mobilization Officer, Macdonald Campus Officer, Communications Officer, Equity Committee (5), Audit Committee (2), External Affairs Committee (open), Mobilization Committee (open), and the Mutual Aid Fund Committee (2). Positions will be held from December 1, 2020–April 30, 2021.
Nomination forms must be signed by the nominee and 5 AGSEM members in good standing. Filled out nomination forms, including self-nominations, for any of the EC or BC positions can be sent to email@example.com. A person may be nominated for only one position during the nomination period. Members can also run in absentia provided they submit a Nomination Form prior to the GA.
The nomination period for all positions will last until Thursday, November 12th at noon, two (2) working days before the General Assembly where the elections will be held. Nominations will also be accepted from the floor at the General Assembly, but only for positions that have one or no nominees.
