AUSU This Month – AGM 2006 – AU Seeking Input For New Publication


The 2006 AUSU Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on September 28, 2006 at 6:00 pm, MST. All AUSU members are invited to attend in-person at our Edmonton office or via free teleconference from almost anywhere in the world. At regular council meetings, only council may vote, but at any general meeting you have a vote as well! Don’t miss this opportunity to express your views and ask council questions about the 2005 financials or this year’s operating budget. If time allows, there will be an informal question period after the meeting as well, to allow council and the membership to engage in some lively discussion about any topic of interest to you.

The annual report will be available though the AUSU web site by the beginning of September. You may download this file for review prior to the meeting, or, if you do not have internet access you can call our office and request one be mailed to you.

We hope to see you there. Your input helps shape the services we will provide you in the coming year. Remember, if you are currently enroled in an AU course that is in progress, or if you have been in a course in the last six months, you are an AUSU member!

AU Seeking Input For New Publication

(Posted on behalf of AU Public Affairs) AU Public Affairs and Communications is developing a new publication, a report to the community. We want to speak to students about their experience at Athabasca University for two specific articles.

One of the articles we want to include is about visiting students and the role that AU plays in their post-secondary education experience. We would like to know why you are taking courses at AU and how AU is able to assist you as a visiting student.

The other article is about the increasing mobility of AU Library resources. We would like to speak to students who use handheld devices such as cellphones and PDAs to access library material. We want to know how being able to access library resources using these mobile devices helps you.

If you are interested in assisting with either of these articles, please call Diane Morrison at 675-6176 or email Diane at Our deadline for gathering research is Friday, September 1, 2006.
