The ETFO Annual Meeting, held this year at the Westin Harbour Castle from August 15-18, 2022, is an important exercise in grassroots democracy within our union.
All locals affiliated with ETFO send voting delegates to this provincial meeting.
How are ETT Delegates chosen? How can I become a Delegate?
ETT has been allowed 87 Delegate positions and 15 Alternate positions. Any Active ETT Member in good standing – a full-time or part-time TDSB elementary teacher (including teachers on leaves) – may self-nominate for election to the position of Delegate following the process outlined in the ETT Constitution.
Please be advised that Executive Officers, Regional Organizers, and up to ten nominees from the New Teacher category have priority status and automatically serve as Delegates to the Annual Meeting.
All other nominees should select from the categories of either Involved Member or Active Member. Please visit the ETT website for more detailed self-nomination instructions.
ETT incurs the hotel costs for Delegates and Alternates. Each hotel room will be occupied by two Delegates. ETFO provides on-site childcare during the Annual Meeting sessions.
All Delegates and Alternates must be present during all business sessions. Failure to attend may result in removal from the delegation or the duration of the Annual Meeting.
What do Delegates do?
- Attend training meetings (spring date TBD)
- Discuss and vote on the priorities of the organization
- Approve the ETFO budget and fees
- Amend the ETFO Constitution
- Fulfill a variety of other responsibilities necessary to the operation of ETFO
- Meet colleagues and have fun! Each of the evenings will feature a variety of activities for members
