AGA & International Forum

Annual General Assembly (AGA)

IMPORTANT: Every Local Committee is required to nominate ONE representative to be a voting delegate at the 2022 WUSC Annual General Assembly (AGA) that will take place online on Friday, January 28, 2022 from 12:00 - 1:30 PM EST.

WHAT IS THE AGA?

Each year, WUSC members and delegates from across the country attend the Annual General Assembly (AGA): an important business meeting conducted in both official languages through simultaneous interpretation. The WUSC Board of Directors and Executive Director share important WUSC updates, and members can exercise their right to vote in WUSC matters.

This year the AGA will be held virtually on January 28, 2022 at 12pm EST, followed by a Special Event to celebrate 75+ years of WUSC!

We will also reveal and celebrate the winner of the 2020-21 WUSC Local Committee of the Year Award! (Has your Local Committee gone above and beyond? Nominate your Local Committee for this award by January 4, 2022)

HOW TO NOMINATE YOUR LOCAL COMMITTEE'S VOTING DELEGATE:

  1. All Local Committee members decide who will be their ONE voting delegate at WUSC’s 75th AGA. This decision should be formally made and recorded (e.g. meeting minutes, a group chat conversation, or an email to all Local Committee members).

  2. Submit the name of the voting delegate using the Google form as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, January 14, 2022 12:00 pm EST.

Voting delegates will receive details on the voting process prior to the AGA on January 28.

With over 100 WUSC Local Committees across the country, your participation in the AGA crucial! All non-voting delegate Local Committee members are welcome to participate in the AGA as observers.
