Policy and Governance Regional Conference Dates Announced

Thank you to our members who participated in the first phase of the Grassroots Development process. The UCP Policy Committee is currently processing the many submissions received from the Policy and Governance survey’s and proposal process. The information gathered from all submissions will form the next phase of membership engagement which will include Regional Conferences and a second survey.

Next steps for the Grassroots Development Process

Results from the first phase of consultation will be available ahead of the Regional Conferences and the second survey giving members the opportunity to review in advance. The Policy Committee will use the results from the first phase of consultation to frame the next Grassroots Development consultation phase to solicit additional feedback from members.

Regional Conferences

The Policy Committee is announcing the dates for the upcoming Regional Conferences to be held in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Medicine Hat and Grande Prairie. Members are invited to attend one Regional Conference where proposed Governance and Policy proposals will be discussed and debated. To help focus the discussion at these conferences registered members will be invited to rank the proposed Policy or Governance items to be tabled at the conference.
