About The Event

AGSEM Annual General Assembly (AGA) on May 15th 2024, at 5:30pm 

The modality of the assembly is hybrid: the physical location is Leacock 26 (downtown; Mac location TBD), and the assembly will also be streamed over Zoom.

General Assembly - Union Elections 

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. 

Rooms: TBD, and online

Dinner will be served! (both downtown and at Mac!!)

The agenga and zoom link will be emailed to everyone who RSVPs in advance of the meeting

For any secret ballots, 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.

Please remember to sign your membership form before the meeting! Only workers who have signed their membership form in the past 12 months are voting members of their union.

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 out of town, have health-related concerns, caregiving responsibilities, or are experiencing other challenges that preclude you from attending in person. Thank you for participating in building a stronger union. ✊ And don't forget—dinner is on us!

We ask that you wear a mask, if you attend in person. The AGSEM General Assembly has voted to require masks at union events for the foreseeable future. The meeting coordinators will ensure there are N95 masks in case you forget your mask at home.
