Agenda for the 2015 Delegate Assembly Meeting

At the upcoming Delegate Assembly meeting, which will take place at the 2015 MLA Annual Convention in Vancouver and begin at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, 10 January (session 530), delegates will consider regular staff and committee reports on association activities, a special report from the Elections Committee on the composition of the Delegate Assembly, proposed constitutional amendments, and a motion. Also on the assembly's agenda is a ninety-minute open discussion of how the MLA should engage with controversial issues. Documents relevant to these agenda items will be made available to members through this page in mid-December.

Since the 1 October deadline for submitting motions and regular resolutions has passed, only emergency resolutions may be added to the assembly’s agenda. Members may submit emergency resolutions to the chair of the Delegate Assembly Organizing Committee up to twenty-four hours before the start of the assembly meeting. The last opportunity for submitting an emergency resolution comes at the Open Hearing on Resolutions at the convention (session 269). Please see the second section in Checklists for Submitting Resolutions for information on submission requirements.
