General Membership Meeting Today!

Don’t forget that today at 12 pm in H 121 there will be a General Membership Meeting!

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. ALL STUDENTS ATTENDING MUST BRING THEIR STUDENT CARD OR RELEVANT PHOTO ID.
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.
