Ladies and gentlemen, it is that time of the year again! The University of Alberta Conservative Association (UACA) will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Friday, March 12th, 2010 at 7:00 PM in CAB 239. Ryan Hastman, our Conservative candidate for the federal riding of Edmonton-Strathcona will be addressing the membership. After the AGM, we plan to party it up and and do a little “Pints and Politics”.
We invite you to come out and vote in next year’s Executive Committee and Directors, and think about running for a position yourself! Several amendments to our constitution have also been proposed.*
The executive positions are as follows:
- President (must be a returning executive member or director)
Executive Vice President
Vice President, Fundraising
Vice President, Recruitment
Vice President, Communications
Vice President, Events
As well, we will be electing six (6) directors to work under various VPs.
Getting involved in the UACA executive is a great way to connect with Edmonton area conservative MPs and MLAs, gain valuable political experience, and as well as to spread the conservative message on campus!
Nominations for elected positions may take place over the UACA e-mailing list, through a signed letter to the President (send e-mail to @president), or on the floor of the Annual General Meeting.
The newly elected Board will take office effective Saturday, May 1st, 2010.
Hope to see you at the AGM!
*Proper procedures to run for elected office and to amend the constitution are outlined in the UACA’s Constitution and Bylaws:
Update (March 11th, 2010 8:30 PM): In addition to Ryan Hastman addressing our membership, alumni member Cameron MacKay will also give us a talk regarding “conservatism and municipal politics”, and share with us his past experiences with the Reform Students Society and Progressive Conservative Campus Club, predecessors of the UACA.
