Invitation: CAUT Equity Conference 2017

Dear members of APUO,

APUO is proud to support the participation of its members at the CAUT Equity conference that will take place on February 24-25, 2017 in Toronto. The APUO Executive committee will cover the expenses for registration, accommodations and transportation for two participants. The participants will be expected to participate in the conference in its entirety and to provide receipts for each expense.

In offering this funding, APUO wishes to build its members’ capacity on equity issues. It is expected that members who wish to participate in the conference are doing so with the intention of eventually being directly engaged with the Association (for example: join the Equity Committee, the Collective Bargaining Committee, the Executive Committee, or the Board of Directors).

Please take a look at the CAUT webpage for more details about the conference.
