Monday’s Ordinary General Meeting included:
- A report by Helga Hallgrímsdóttir, President of the UVic Faculty Association, in which she detailed the recent activities of the association’s executive and plans going forward;
- A talk from Professor Brian Brown, President of the CAUT Defense Fund, on the benefits of joining the Fund;
- A report from Richard Pickard, our Treasurer, on the need for a mil-rate increase at this time.
These presentations generated lively discussion and several important questions were raised that could not be answered on the spot. We’ll be seeking answers to these questions and posting them here, so that each member has the information they need to make a confident decision on the two upcoming ballots related to these issues.
