Below, please find the guidelines and nomination form for the Atlantic Voice Award.

PSAC-Atlantic Regional Council

ELECTED

The members of the Atlantic Regional Council are elected geographically (NS, NB, NL, PE) and/or by constituency (Equity Group, non-Treasury Board, etc.) at PSAC-Atlantic’s Triennial Convention.  All Council members are assigned to work with Committees of the Council.  It is in the balance of these two functions that Council members define their roles and responsibilities.

The SJYWC raised $700 in support of the Ronald McDonald House for the Spare Some Love annual bowling fundraiser. 

8 young workers attended. The four young workers on the SJYWC team were Brian Gallant (UTE 90001), Kayode Oluwadairo (TAUMUN), Leanne Moss (UNE 99242), Shad Rahman (TAUMUN). 

CEIU local 90113 also submitted a team consisting of Allison Doyle, Karla White, Melissa Thomas and Melissa White. Thank you to PSAC Atlantic and to all of you who donated to support this great cause.
