UTFA AGM Update – Newsletter and Constitutional Amendments

April 2011 UTFA Annual Newsletter

We had quorum at the UTFA Annual General Meeting on Wed. April 20, at the Faculty Club, which meant that the amendments discussed and approved in Council concerning the UTFA Constitution and By-laws were voted on and approved. Here are some highlights:

1. Term limits were established for the President and UTFA Executive Committee. “A President may serve for more than one two-year term but not more than six consecutive years” and “No member of the Executive may serve in any one position on the Executive for more than six consecutive years. In both cases, the term limit includes consecutive time served prior to July 1, 2011.” 2. Members of the Executive Committee be extended from one year to two years, effective July 1, 2011 3. “There shall be a Nominating Committee consisting of five members including either a member of the current Executive Committee or, failing that, a Past-President of the Association. Council must approve the Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee shall compile a slate of nominees for the following positions where there is an upcoming vacancy, including those resulting from the expiration of a term of office: non-Presidential members of the Executive Committee (the three Vice-Presidents, the Treasurer, the Chairs of the Standing Committees, and the members-at-large).”
