Annual General Meeting rescheduled

Student Association (SA) president, Ryan LePage hopes to see at least 250 students walk through the doors of E.P. Taylor’s on Monday Jan. 26.

No it is not another pub; it is the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the student government of Durham College and The University of Ontario Institute of Technology.

The AGM is a yearly meeting for full-time DC/UOIT students to voice their opinions and vote on things that could affect the fundamental structure of the SA.

The SA rescheduled its AGM after it was cancelled last year, because not enough students showed up.

150 students attended the last meeting in November but for an AGN to run, 250 students must be present.

“You as an individual are an essential part of the SA, as without you, there is no SA,” says Ryan LePage, president of the SA, “You can give feedback and propose changes and ideas on any aspect of the Student Association, whether it be about expanding clubs, or bringing forth policy ideas. Don’t forget – it is your SA. Your vote matters!”

The SA represents about 21,000 students on campus and operates on an annual budget of $8.8 million to fund things such as Riot Radio, campus clubs and the health care plan. E.P.’s doors open at 2 p.m., while the meeting starts at 3 p.m.

Students need to bring their full-time student ID card for entry.
