On November 6, 2019, a message was sent out encouraging members to attend the Annual General Meeting, which was in progress, so that we could attempt to meet quorum.
Unfortunately, we did not meet the quorum requirement of 100 members. Although we were not able to deal with any business items that were on the agenda, we were able to present reports from myself, Treasurer, Equity Officer, Chair of our Grievances Committee and from the Executive Director. Please login to see these written reports which are all posted to the AGM space on our website. Brief discussions were held and questions were answered around these items.
Executive decided not to spend AASUA funds on a video production for a general meeting where no actual business was transacted. However, Executive has approved the cost for the video production of our guest speaker James L. Turk who gave a presentation entitled "What's All the Fuss about Campus Free Speech? Politics, Academic Freedom & the Mission of the University". Members who were unable to attend the AGM can watch this video here.
We invite your suggestions on how we could increase attendance at future AGMs. Please login and post your suggestions here.
