This year, the APS National Council will take place during the weekend of November 2, 2019, in Montreal, at Place D’Armes Hotel, Tango Room. Delegates from the different regions of the country will meet to decide on the orientations of the association as well as learning about the various work activities in the life of the union. The President, the Interim National Secretary, the Treasurer as well as the General Manager will provide accounts of the outputs from their respective areas of concern while delegates will inform the assembly of their preoccupations and realities in the regional Round table event.
Members in good standing wishing to attend may contact their local APS officers to obtain the delegate status. Our By-Laws provide the possibility to nominate one delegate per share of 50 members. Members in good standing residing in the location of the National Council can also attend as observers. Maria Gaglione, APS Coordinator, is responsible for overseeing the operation.
The day after the National Council, Sunday, November 3, 2019, the Members’ Annual General Meeting takes place at 9 a.m. at the same location. The purpose of the meeting is to disclose the election results following the vote held electronically during the week of October 21, 2019. This year, the only resolution proposed to a vote will be the renewal of the external auditors Désormeaux, Patenaude Inc.’s mandate, as submitted by our National Executive Committee.
The current Regional Directors, as well as the Montreal and Toronto Local Presidents, have all been re-elected by acclamation. All APS positions are submitted to two-year rotating mandates.
Two election officers representing each network will be appointed to oversee proceedings; David MacFarlane Regional Director in the West and Pascal Baczyk Regional Director in the East will be responsible for announcing the results by connecting to the company conducting the consultation, Big Pulse.
