AUSU Bylaw Revisions

On September 12 at 5:30pm MT, AUSU Council will be voting on the first reading of an updated version of AUSU bylaws.

You can view the proposed bylaws draft here.

AUSU is a statutory corporation, established by the Post-Secondary Learning Act of Alberta. The Act requires that the elected student representatives create bylaws for the organization.

These revisions are a recommendation of your AUSU council, following over one year of research, discussion, and drafting, and they aim to:

• ensure compliance with the Post-Secondary Learning Act of Alberta;
• safeguard the health of AUSU as an organization well into the future; and
• capture the spirit of the existing Bylaws, while offering enhanced direction and transparency.

Member Consultation Opportunities:

As a member of AUSU, your feedback is valuable, so we will be providing the following opportunities for member consultation:

AUSU has a bylaw forum online here. Members are welcome to ask questions or provide feedback on the bylaw changes in the forums.

Member Consultations
AUSU council will host 2 membership consultations by teleconference. Members are welcome to join and ask questions or provide feedback on the bylaw changes. The teleconference instructions are available online here.

The member consultations will be held on the following dates:

• Wednesday, September 6 at 1:00 pm MT
• Tuesday, September 19 at 6:00 pm MT

Public Readings of the Bylaws

In accordance with the bylaws, AUSU will present the bylaws in “public readings” at two different council meetings. Meetings are by teleconference, and all members are welcome.

The meeting agenda and teleconference instructions will be posted online here at least 3 business days prior to the meetings. There is a Q&A period at the end of all council meetings to allow feedback and questions from the membership.

1st Reading: Tuesday, Sept 12 at 5:30pm MT.

Proposed 2nd Reading: Thursday, Oct 12 at 5:30pm MT.
