We have two very important messages to pass along from our friends at The Manitoba Teachers’ Society.

First up is the official notice of call from MTS in regards to the Society’s AGM:


This notice is given in compliance with Bylaw II of The Manitoba Teachers’ Society.

The 100th Annual General Meeting of the Provincial Council of The Manitoba Teachers’ Society will be held beginning at 8:30 a.m. on May 23, 24 and 25, 2019 at The Fairmont Winnipeg.

The Provincial Council consists of representatives named by teacher associations and Les éducatrices et éducateurs francophones du Manitoba plus the members of the current Provincial Executive. The number of delegates representing each association depends on the number of members in that association.
