The Local hosted an online Annual General Meeting on May 21st. Members in attendance received a budget update, listened to a Local bargaining update, had questions addressed. Thank you to all those who attended this new format.
Congratulations to the new 2020-2022 Local Executive
For the 2019-20 school year, the members at the Fall General Meeting on Oct 23rd have approved a fund to support the costs of workshops, ABQ/AQs and Professional Learning resources. Members can apply this year, for a qualifications course $100 reimbursement by submitting proof of enrollment and receipt of payment to our president.
Additionally, members may purchase an educational resource book and receive a $50 reimbursement once per year. In order to receive this funding, your chosen resource must be pre-approved (sorry no teacher-pay-teacher stuff). Just email the president, with your name, title of resource, and email address. After approval, and upon submission of a receipt, a cheque will be issued.
Funds are distributed on a “first come, first served” basis until the budgeted amount is depleted. This year a fund of $5000 was approved at the Fall GM. Keep on learnin’
