Please provide a non-work email to be used if electronic balloting is necessary.

You are also registering to attend the Local 1207 Meeting on February 18, 2021 from 6:00-7:00 pm. The nominations for Convention Delegates will close at this meeting. You MUST register in order to receive a Zoom link to attend this meeting.

The BCGEU 51st Triennial Constitutional Convention will be taking place from Wednesday, June 9, 2021 to Saturday, June 12, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the BCGEU will be holding a hybrid convention with most delegates attending convention virtually. Additional delegates may be able to attend convention in person, if public health orders and restrictions permit.

The Constitutional Convention is where BCGEU members elect the President, Treasurer, and the four Executive Vice-Presidents and determine what the mandate of YOUR Union will be over the next three years.

To attend Convention, you must be elected as a delegate (or alternate) of your local. Local 1207 is entitled to one delegate and two alternates. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, election of all delegates and alternates will be done by electronic voting.

Commencing January 17, 2021, nominations will be open for delegates (and alternates) to Convention. The Nomination Period will close on February 18, 2021 at 6 p.m.

If you would like to participate in the election of the delegates for your local, you must register below. By registering, you will be able to receive an electronic ballot if an election is required. You may register to participate in the election using this link until 5:00 p.m. on February 18, 2021. A non-work email address is required to ensure you receive your ballot (many employer email systems have firewalls which will prevent an electronic ballot from reaching your Inbox).

If you would like to attend convention as a delegate or alternate, you must complete the attached nomination form and return it via email to [email protected]. Nominations will close at the local meeting on February 18, 2021 which starts at 6:00 p.m. Your nomination form must include any bio you would like added to the ballot in the event that there is an election (max. 350 words plus one photo). No late bios will be accepted.
