The ETFO Annual Meeting Committee is responsible for preparing resolutions to bring to the ETFO Annual Meeting the following summer and to elect and prepare the PETL Delegation for this Provincial Meeting. The committee spends the year gathering, discussing, researching, and preparing resolutions gathered from other PETL committees and individual members. Delegates are elected at our annual Fall General Membership Meeting. Our delegation consists of fifty-four (54) delegates and ten (10) alternates. Peel has the second largest delegation at the meeting, making us a strong voice.
A Resolutions Sub-Committee is formed at the end of November made up of delegates, alternates and any other interested members. Resolutions are due to the chair of the ETFO Annual Meeting by November 30th each year as per our Peel Constitutional Guidelines. This committee meets a number of times before final resolutions are to be presented at PETL’s Winter General Membership Meeting for approval by the membership.
Delegate meetings are provided for delegates and alternates in May and June. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss Peel resolutions and to review Parliamentary Procedures, Delegation Agreements and other housekeeping items that prepare the PETL Delegation for the upcoming summer’s ETFO Annual Meeting.
Delegates and alternates then attend the ETFO Annual Meeting in August in Toronto to discuss and vote on resolutions that shape the future of our organization and to elect members of the Provincial Executive. The ETFO Annual Meeting Committee is truly a committee that allows you to have your voice heard as well as the opportunity to participate in decisions that impact both Peel and ETFO as a whole.
