Upcoming SAGM, call for board rep nominees, and consensus workshop

A reminder that our ** Semi-Annual General Meeting ** is coming up this Monday, April 13th at 4pm in the Women’s Centre SUB B107. All self identified women, genderfluid or non-binary folks are welcomed to join us, and you don’t have to be a collective member to attend. Join us to hear what we have been working on and what we are planning for the future. Bus tickets will be available, food will be provided, and children are welcomed to join. Email us at wcentre@uvss.ca if you have any questions or concerns.

We also have a Consensus Decision Making workshop taking place in the Women’s Centre tomorrow (Thursday, April 9) from 5:30-7:30pm. This will be facilitated by former coordinator Jess Humphries and will be in preparation for the SAGM, as well as to improve our collective processes more broadly. New members are encouraged to join and participate to learn about how consensus decision making works at the Women’s Centre.

We are seeking a new Women’s Centre representative on the UVSS Board of Directors and will be electing this board rep at our upcoming SAGM. This person’s role is to represent the Women’s Centre as an anti-oppressive, feminist voice on the UVSS board of directors. If you are interested in running for this position, please send over a short write-up describing yourself and your interest and/or qualifications for the position by Friday. This position is limited to Women’s Centre collective members and current undergraduate students (or those returning to school in the Fall). The position will begin in May 2015 and requires a commitment to attend bi-weekly meetings throughout the year. We will send out all the candidates’ write ups with the SAGM agenda this weekend for folks to inform themselves before the meeting takes place on Monday.
