Fall meetings set for Regions 1 and 2

HSA Regional Meeting
Monday, October 6
8:30 a.m. ... 4:00 p.m.
Tigh-Na-Mara Resort, Parksville

Regional meetings are an excellent opportunity for HSA members to review the issues and activities of the past year, and to discuss the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. The meeting will be jointly chaired by Region 1 Director Suzanne Bennett and Region 2 Director Val Avery. HSA President Reid Johnson will report on union activities and issues since the April 2008 convention. Delkegates are also encouraged to join board members in this year's Run for the Cure, Sunday Oct. 5. Accommodation expenses will be covered for those who chose to participate in the Nanaimo run.

This year, delegates in odd-numbered regions (1,3,5,7, and 9) will elect members-at-large who will begin their two-year term at the conclusion of the unions 2009 annual convention.

All HSA members are encouraged to attend this meeting. However, only those members who have delegate status will be eligible for reimbursement of expenses.

If you are interested in attending the regional meeting, please contact your Chief Steward. All application forms must be signed by the Chief Steward .

In conjunction with the regional meeting, HSA will be holding a one-day education workshop open to all regional meeting delegates. This years workshop will be two-pronged, with a focus on selected contract interpretation issues for one half of the day, with the other half devoted to discussion and recommendations about the unions strategic plan.
