Tonia Ballantyne, Annual Meeting Chair
Welcome back to the start of another exciting school year! It’s hard to believe that we are already a couple of months in – where does the time go?!?
I would like to thank the 24 SCETF Members who were delegates and alternates, and took time out of their summer to attend the 2017 ETFO Annual General Meeting in Toronto. This year our delegation included four first time attendees!
The ETFO Annual General Meeting provides members with opportunities to affect change within our union, develop policy statements that guide our union’s voice, and determine how our union utilizes the dues we provide. The debates can be long, yet full of energy and passion. It’s amazing to be a part of the fight to improve working conditions for teachers across Ontario and improve learning conditions for all children, alongside all of our ETFO colleagues.
This year, the ETFO Annual General Meeting will held August 13th to 16th, 2018 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. The Annual Meeting ratifies the priorities of the organization, elects the Executive, approves the budget and fees, amends the Constitution, votes on resolutions, and fulfills a variety of other responsibilities.
If you are interested in becoming a delegate to the Annual Meeting, please submit the form below.

An election to determine the SCETF Delegates to this meeting will take place at the SCETF Annual Meeting on Wednesday, May 30th, 2018, held at the SCETF Office. At this time, you may make a brief one to two minute speech on why you should represent the SCETF Local.
NOTE: 18 Delegates will represent SCETF Local. Guaranteed Delegate positions are: President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President and 3rd Vice President. There is also a guaranteed Alternate position for the Annual General Meeting Chair
