General Meeting - February 7th 2013

For full details, read our latest blog post here.

The NDP strives to make meetings accessible to all members. If you have specific accessibility needs, please send an email to president@peterboroughndp.ca and we will contact you.

Anyone with a resolution for the meeting is strongly encouraged to review the Guide to Resolutions and the Policy Book before drafting their resolution. The Policy Book provides the basis for debate at all conventions. The Guide to Resolutions explains the best ways to format the three types of resolutions handled at convention: policy resolutions, statements and directives, and constitutional amendments.

Please note that the Guide to Resolutions limits the whereas clauses (preamble) to under 50 words and strongly encourages that resolutions be kept under 100 words. If you are able to submit your resolution in advance to president@peterboroughndp.ca we will be able to project it on-screen at the meeting.

You can find these lengthy documents here and under Important Documents. However, if you need hard copies, contact us and we will make them accessible to you.

The Executive has voted to support a resolution on Proportional Representation put forward by New Democrats for Fair Voting: we submit it for your approval to send to Convention. If you have a resolution you would like us to consider, please forward it to president@peterboroughndp.ca. Resolutions to be discussed need to be received no later than Tuesday, February 5, 2013.

Since 2004, the Peterborough provincial and federal riding association executives have been elected jointly and met jointly under a Letter of Understanding passed by each association. With the upcoming changes to the number of ridings in Ontario and their boundaries, the ONDP Provincial Executive feels we need to have separate provincial and federal riding executives, meeting separately, each focused on the distinct work that needs to done to send New Democrats as our elected representatives to Queens Park and Parliament Hill respectively. In light of this, we need the membership to elect two separate executives. We're hoping to keep on the great people we have now but new officers are always welcome. If you need more information, contact president@peterboroughndp.ca.
