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 organization’s 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.
There will be a procedural primer at the commencement of the GA to ensure all those attending have an understanding of the relevant procedures. For an overview of procedures, check out this cheat sheet. In addition, there will be an address by the MSU President, Josh Marando, near the beginning to update members on his activities for the past few months, as well as any significant information from the MSU. The agenda of the meeting will be posted at msumcmaster.ca/GA on March 12.
