Convention 2023

Convention 2023 was a success, we saw changes that will help with engagement while learning from the more experienced peers. From breaking down the barrier between Delegates and Alternates/Observers; all attendees will now be able to sit together, helping with learning parliamentary procedures and Robert’s Rules.

Delegates also voted for full coverage from Central for a single room when on Union business. This takes away the burden of smaller locals in dealing with the expense of covering half the cost of Delegates. Alternates and Observers continue to be the Local’s responsibility.

With inflation as high as it is, the meal allowance had not been updated since 2015. Changes were brought forward and the Delegates voted in favor for an increase.

Breakfast was 13, now 20

Lunch was 19 and now 27

Supper was 29 and now 36.

These changes took effect at the time of the vote.
