…Therefore be it resolved

HSA members will soon be preparing for the 2014 HSA Convention, to be held April 10-12, 2014 at the Fairmont Hotel (Vancouver Hotel) in Vancouver.

Annual convention is the union’s annual meeting where chapter representatives from around the province determine the union’s future direction.  Policies, actions, constitutional amendments, and structural changes are all discussed and debated at convention.

Members who have specific issues that they want to raise at convention are encouraged to attend their local chapter meeting.  Resolutions must be endorsed by the chapter before they are sent to the HSA office for inclusion in the Annual Report. The Annual Report is published in March and will be available on-line only, with a limited supply to be printed for use at the annual convention.

The deadline for receipt of resolutions in the HSA office is 5:00 p.m., on Tuesday, February 4, 2014.  To ensure your chapter resolutions are forwarded to convention, please submit resolutions by the final deadline, as late resolutions are not considered.

Convention forms the basis of the union's decision-making process.  Each individual member has an important role to play in determining HSA's objectives and goals for the next year.  Please attend your chapter meeting and participate in this vital part of the union's democratic process.
