One of the most important events for parents on school council is the ASCA Conference and Annual General Meeting.
Held each spring at the end of April (usually the third weekend), some 350 delegates from across the province come together to share issues, participate in learning sessions and develop policy for the association. In addition, elections to the Board of Directors takes place.
The three day event starts on a Friday with registration, Resource Gallery exhibits, pre-sessions, and a welcome social. A (very) full Saturday agenda starts with breakfast, plenary and breakout sessions, address from the Education Ministry, lunch, preparation for the AGM and elections, and an evening awards banquet.
A resource gallery is presented, with over 30 exhibitors displaying products, services and information of value for parents in public education.
Sunday's business meeting starts early, after breakfast, and continues until all resolutions proposed for policy are debated and voted upon, as well as election of the new governing Board.
Don't miss an opportunity to be involved, to be heard, and make a difference in public education.
Call the office for more information, or contact a Provincial Director in your area regarding registration for your school council.
Voting is your voice
Shape the future of Alberta's public education system with your input.
Resolutions passed into policy at the AGM form the association perspective as presented to Alberta government and organizations in education.
All school councils with current ASCA membership are eligible to send parent representatives to vote on behalf of the school council at the ASCA Annual General Meeting.
