CMG Convention 2020: May 29-31

Our union’s biennial national convention will be held from Friday, May 29 to Sunday, May 31 in Toronto.

Every two years, about 200 Canadian Media Guild (CMG) members from across the country get together to review CMG priorities, see what we can do better, and set our union’s direction for the next two years.

Look for more information on electing delegates and submitting resolutions for this year’s convention soon.

In the meantime, here are some things to keep in mind:

Automatic delegates

Members of Branch executives and Location Unit presidents are all automatic delegates to the convention, along with the CMG National Executive Committee members.

Additional delegates

The number of additional delegates for each Branch or Location Unit is determined by a formula based on membership. Specific numbers are available here:  https://www.cmg.ca/en/2020-convention-delegate-entitlement/.

The Branch or Location Unit is responsible for organizing an election to determine who shall receive credentials as voting delegates.

Each Location Unit may also send additional non-voting delegates (observers). Speak with your local union executive if you would like to attend.

Proposing resolutions and bylaw amendments

Resolutions and amendments can deal with CMG policy or national bylaws.  Click here to see current CMG bylaws and policies.

Any member in good standing can submit a resolution or bylaw amendment, whether or not you are attending the convention.
