What is an AGM?
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the most important event hosted by your Student Union. Those who attended will have the opportunity to learn more about their union, and vote on critical issues facing students.
Power to the people
As a member, it is your right to attend the AGM. Members can submit proposals that will be heard and voted on by all members present at the AGM. You have the power to make real change on campus, and it starts at the AGM.
Knowledge is power
Be an informed voter. Attend our board meetings or keep up-to-date with our electronic Meeting Minutes posted on our website.
We will release the AGM Agenda leading up to the event. Keep an eye out for event details in the Fall which will be advertised on our website, social media channels, and UOIT SU poster boards.
Many hands make light work
If the AGM falls on a date or time that you can’t make it – not to worry. You can appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf by completing a simple online form before the event (maximum one proxy per attendee). The online Proxy Form will be available closer to the event date (TBD).
