Calling for new Departments/Services Reps Nominations:

This extraordinary meeting is dedicated to elect a rep for each Department/Service. There are still vacant positions on the Committee, but we are now looking to elect Departmental & Professional Services Reps. We encourage anyone who would like to be involved with the branch to send your nomination to the Returning Officer, Kevin Perkins, by noon Monday 19 October 2020 (extended from previous date of 14 October 2020).

As a Department or PS rep, you will not have voting rights on Committee (because too many voting reps makes it difficult to be quorate), but you will be entitled to take the Rep training courses. Coming up: Rep 1: Induction – 24 November, 1, 8, 15, December 2020, Online (10:30-12:30).
