General Assembly

The date for General Assembly 2020 will be announced shortly. In previous years, GA was held in Burridge Gym from 4-7pm in late March. Registration will open at 3:15pm in the mezzanine above the gym. Please enter via the IWC hallway and bring a valid student card to register.

To submit a motion, please email the Speaker of the MSU at speaker@msu.mcmaster.ca by noon on March 13, 2019.  Please note, the Speaker will order motions based on logical reasoning and not necessarily in the order that they are received.  Also, only items on the agenda can be motioned at General Assembly.

General Assembly 2019 Agenda

For an overview of procedures, check out the cheat sheet.

The MSU General Assembly is the constitutionally-mandated annual meeting of all full-time undergraduate students (18 or more units), wherein any student may submit a motion for discussion or debate and speak for - or against - any issue. The GA serves as an opportunity to participate in the decision making process of the MSU and have an opportunity to direct the organizations actions. Additionally, it is a place where the business of students is brought before an open and public session, where individuals can have any business addressed and even have binding motions passed on the union.
