Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on June 21, 2016 at The Latvian Centre. We did not reach our quorum of 50 members attending; therefore, we could not pass a budget or conduct the usual business of an AGM. In respect for those who attended we did review the proposed budget and current budget lines, discussed the specific costs of the purchase of our BU office space last May, and the renovation costs that occurred last summer and fall.
Additionally, the chair of the Constitution Committee briefly highlighted some of the motions that her committee proposed for passage. These motions will be discussed in the fall.
On September 21, 2016 we will reconvene a general meeting where we will propose the Bargaining Unit budget for the 16-17 school year. We are tentatively scheduled to hold the meeting at George S Henry Academy, where our Gala was held on May 25. It is south of Fairview Mall a couple of blocks, so near the subway and DVP/401. Look for information in early September.
