Dear Colleagues,

The AASUA Bylaws Amendment Committee (BAC) has prepared new bylaws for the Association which we now wish to present to you for discussion at a Town Hall meeting to be held on Friday, December 8th, from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm in the Law Centre (North Campus) Room 105.

These new bylaws reflect organizational changes as desired by the membership. To help you understand the new bylaws and the process that brought them into being, please see the following documents:

You can also find a detailed “Backgrounder” and earlier reports of the committee at http://www.aasua.ca/about-us/ad-hoc-committees/bylaws-amendment-committee/.

Bylaws may not be the most exciting documents to read, but these new bylaws reflect an important new vision for the Association, and we hope you will join us for this Town Hall to hear about and discuss the new provisions. We look forward to apprising you of the significant changes to the governance of the Association reflected in the new bylaws, along with their rationale, as well as to engaging you in conversation about them. We will describe our process, present the various changes, and engage those who attend in round table conversations.

Please register for the Town Hall here. We encourage you to register as early as possible to help us ensure that we have a suitable space for this important AASUA event.  And should you have any questions in advance of the Town Hall, I welcome you to be in touch with me, as the committee’s chair (write me at james.muir@ualberta.ca or phone me on campus at 780-492-0858). Ultimately, the new bylaws, after the remaining steps in the process as set out in the committee’s constituting motion, will be presented to you, the members, for ratification.

Thank you.
