Notice of Board Motion Re: Elections

This message is to all members of the Trent Central Student Association regarding Elections. Ongoing discussions regarding a Board resolution passed at a meeting on Sunday, November 18th have now concluded. The original motion was worded as follows:

 

Whereas discussion regarding levy group policy is ongoing and pending approval by members of the Association in the 2019 Spring Elections & Referenda, be it resolved that no petitions for the initiation of new levy group fees be accepted for the 2019 Spring Electoral Period.

 

Please note that after discussion with members of the Association and with fellow Board members, the Board of Directors voted to reconsider its original motion and amended it on Sunday, January 27th to read as follows:

 

Whereas discussion regarding levy group policy is ongoing and pending approval by members of the Association in the 2019 Spring Elections, be it resolved that the TCSA board of directors advises against any petitions for the initiation of new levy group fees on the Spring 2019 electoral ballot.

 

Due the Association’s Semi-Annual General Meeting (SAGM), which occurred on Friday, February 8th, the Association waited to make a public statement regarding this matter so as to be certain that further discussion by the membership would not change the status of this motion. Now that the SAGM has passed, the amended motion stands.

 

Petitions regarding the initiation of new levy group fees are being accepted for the 2019 Spring Elections Period although the TCSA advises against this due to the forthcoming Levy Group Policy for this year’s referendum. Anyone with questions regarding the TCSA’s Elections is encouraged to email elections@trentcentral.ca

 

Questions regarding the production of levy policy can be directed to the Association’s Vice President Clubs & Groups, Cydney Habraken, by emailing vpclubs@trentcentral.ca, or to the Association’s Vice President Campaigns & Equity, Lindsay Yates, by emailing vpcampaigns@trentcentral.ca

 

Sincerely,

Matthew Seaby

Chief Electoral Office
