General Membership Meeting Tomorrow!

Thursday November 29th, 2012 at 12pm in room K229 B (Alumni Hall) and there will be pizza and refreshments for all students attending.

The General Membership Meeting (GMM) is a forum of direct democracy open to all Laurentian student’s studying at either the Barrie or Orillia campuses. Student’s may participate if they are currently enrolled in at least ONE Laurentian University course.

The GMM facilitates a ‘bottom-up’ democratic process, ensuring that your students’ union, the Laurentian Students’ Union (LSU) has a mandate that is established by and for the student’s it represents.

The LSU believes that empowered GMMs are the most effective way to ensure that all voices are provided a forum to influence the decision making process. In other words, the direct democracy of the GMM allows those who are most affected by decisions the opportunity to participate in the process of making those decisions.

So, the LSU invites you to come out and make your voice heard. Come to the GMM to listen, discuss, debate, and vote on issues that directly affect your experience as a University student.

Items on the agenda for this GMM are:

1. Debrief and LSU Introduction
2. Health Plan
3. Campaigns (update on campaigns, campaign committee)
4. Events (Event updates, Event ideas)
5. Clubs and Student Associations
6. Constitution Changes
7. Open floor for student comments, questions, motions

This is a preliminary agenda, and may be edited as the GMM comes closer. Students may wish to add items to the agenda, and if they do, please contact Mark Gauci ( or post on this event.


Additional items can be added to the agenda after being presented at the beginning of the GMM and must be endorsed by no less than a 2/3rds majority.
Ratification of all motions presented to the GMM must be endorsed by no less than a 2/3rds majority.
