Deadline for Nominations: 4 pm Friday, August 30, 2019
Dear AASUA Members
The AASUA is seeking nominations for 3 CAUT Defence Fund Trustees for one year terms to represent the interests of the AASUA on the fund.
The CAUT Defence Fund provides unionized Canadian academic member unions with a unified strike fund. CAUT Defence Fund Trustees have fiduciary responsibilities to ensure that the fund is used solely to meet the objectives and purposes of the fund and to represent the views and interests of their own association.
The number of Trustees each member association is entitled to is proportional to its membership, and the AASUA being the largest academic staff association in Canada is entitled to a total of 9 Trustees.
The 3 representatives will join the AASUA President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Equity Officer and two previously elected members in representing the interests of the AASUA on the CAUT Defence Fund. Trustees must be able to attend regular teleconferences related to the fund and the Annual General Meeting of Trustees to be held on October 5, 2019, at the InterContinental Hotel, in Toronto, Ontario.
Please send an email to me with your name, a brief biography, and a statement of your interest in the position by 4 pm on Friday, August 30, 2019. If more than 3 members are interested in the position, there will be an election for these positions by the general membership.
See the CAUT Defence Fund for more information.
