MSU General Assembly on March 20 in Burridge Gym

This year, the annual MSU General Assembly (GA) will be held on March 20 in Burridge Gym from 4 - 7 PM. Registration will open at 3:15 PM in the mezzanine above the gym, with entry via the IWC hallway. MSU members are welcome to attend with their student card. Motions must be submitted to the MSU Speaker by email at speaker@msu.mcmaster.ca no later than March 13 at noon. For more information, click here.

"General Assembly is the place to voice your concerns and hold meaningful debate about issues on McMaster's campus”, says Elizabeth Wong, MSU Speaker. “If you are unsure about the procedure but would like to submit a motion, please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me - I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and share your voice with the rest of McMaster's community."

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. In addition, there will be an address by the MSU President near the beginning to update members on her 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 13.
