MoveUP 2020 Job Steward Seminar: Reminder Deadline to Apply is January 27!
January 20, 2020
To: All MoveUP Job Stewards, Executive Councillors and Executive Board Members
Registration is open for the 2020 Job Steward Seminar at Harrison Hot Springs Resort March 19-22, 2020.
This seminar is open to stewards, councillors and board members who have completed both Job Steward Level 1 & 2 training or are currently registered to complete Levels 1 & 2 in January and February.
As we are expecting a higher volume of registrations this seminar, please be aware that spaces are limited and will not be issued on a first-come-first-serve basis. Your education committee chairs will be responsible for selecting qualified stewards based on the answers you provide in the registration survey. They will be looking at members who have shown dedication to the organization, and labour movement as a whole, past MoveUP or other labour education attended, and how you will use the training and skills gained this seminar to connect-motivate-activate in your workplaces.
In order to register please fill out the registration survey from the link below, no later than 4:30 p.m. Monday, January 27, 2020. Please note you must be able to attend all four days of the seminar – no exceptions will be made.
MoveUP will arrange and cover the costs of single accommodation rooms, travel and leave time as per the MoveUP expense policy. If you have any questions about the expense or travel policies please contact Secretary-Treasurer Lori Mayhew. For those of you requiring transportation from the lower mainland, MoveUP has arranged a charter bus for select pick-up and drop-off locations. You will be able to register for a seat once you are confirmed to attend. Those who are selected to attend will be notified by the education committee no later than Friday, February 7, 2020.
Participants are welcome to invite their partners and children, however, MoveUP is not providing childcare at this seminar, and each evening will have a short mandatory session. Should you have a guest join us, you will be responsible for the cost of their meals and travel related expenses.
We are very excited for the refreshed job steward seminar and have worked hard to bring you top-notched speakers and new course context. Follow the link here to see the course descriptions.
