All-candidate meetings set for March in HSA election for president

(first web-posted January 17, 2007)

Delegates to the 2007 HSA Convention will elect a new union president for the first time in 14 years.  As this marks a major change in the leadership of the union, HSA will be holding a series of three all-candidate meetings to give chief stewards an opportunity to meet the presidential candidates, hear their vision for the union and ask questions.

The all-candidate meetings will be as follows:

For members in Region 8
Monday, March 5, 2007    1:00 ... 4:00 pm
Coast Capri Hotel, Kelowna

For members in Regions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 & 10
Wednesday, March 7, 2007    1:00 ... 4:00 pm
Inn at Westminster Quay, New Westminster

For members in Region 1 & 2
Friday, March 9th, 2007    1:00 ... 4:00 pm
Hotel Grand Pacific, Victoria 

All members are welcome to attend the all-candidate meetings, however HSA will pay wage replacement, per diems and travel expenses for chief stewards to attend (one per chapter - facilities with more than 300 members may also send their assistant chief steward).   If a chief steward or assistant chief steward is unable to attend, an alternate may be selected.

HSA will also pay wage replacement, per diems and travel expenses for presidential candidates, regional directors and MALs (who are not chief stewards).

Please note that accommodation will be paid only if participants are unable to travel to and from the meetings the same day (e.g. no flights are available).

Registration Forms must be received by the HSA office no later than Friday, February 23rd.  Questions regarding registration should be directed to Lorraine Mack at the HSA office.
