Local Draft By-Laws will be posted for review March 22nd, as there have been some changes to address member concerns and some corrections made.
Due to Provincial and Municipal Guidelines the Local are not able to have meetings as normal.
However, given our Constitutional obligations, we have spent some time determining the best way to keep everyone informed while following the various Public Health Policies now in effect.
To this end it has been decided to hold our monthly General Membership Meetings via video conferencing using the ZOOM platform.
This software is free for you, the member, to use although as this will be over the internet some data charges may apply.
As these meetings are to be private, we ask for those interested in attending to register in advance. Only one registrant per device (no group callers/speakers).
During the meeting, please leave your camera off until recognized by the Chair, thankyou.
This is a relatively straight forward process, to begin please click the following link to register:
