RE:                  DELEGATES TO CONVENTION 2020 – 1st & 2nd CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

As you are aware, the COVID-19 Pandemic will most probably impact the normal operation of Convention 2020. The Union is in the process of contingency planning for multiple alternatives, based on the status of the pandemic recovery and any relevant public health orders. As part of this planning process, the Union is sending out the calls for nomination as per the requirements under the bylaws. We will be providing further updates about convention in the near future.

As required by our By-Laws, this is the FIRST (1st) & SECOND (2nd) call for nominations for Full Time/Regular Part Time and On-call Delegates to Convention 2020This year, Convention will be held over two (2) days, October 6th& 7th at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport in Richmond. 

Please note: There has been a change in the category names for delegate positions, to align with the change made by BCEHS. Members historically referred to as “Part time” are now referred to as “On-call”

You will be advised at a later date as to the number of delegates entitled to attend Convention for your Region.  Please note that nominations must be for members in good standing in the Union.
