Local Presidents' Meeting
The Local Presidents have met annually since 2002 to netwrok, and discuss common goals and concerns.
The 2016 Local Presidents' meeting took place on June 11 and 12 at the UNW Training Centre. Please see the attached letter from Gayla Thunstrom.
Visiting Presidents to the UNW Full Executive Meetings
The UNW Full Executive meets formally a minimum of three times a year. There is a rotation list of Local Presidents who are invited to attend the Full Executive Meetings. Visiting Presidents have full voice at these meetings, but no vote. They are also welcome to attend Executive committee meetings as observers.
You can download the Visiting Presidents 2015-17 rotation list. Visiting Presidents will be contacted approximately 3-4 weeks before the meeting.
If any member wishes to observe a Full Executive Meeting, they are welcome to do so. Please contact the Director of Finance and Administration a couple of weeks in advance of the meeting for more information. (Any related expenses would be the responsibility of the member or the Local.)
