Those who submit motions are requested to be at the AGM in order to present the motion and answer questions.

Additionally, over the last year we have been working to update the URGSA Constitution and Bylaws, which, if ratified at the AGM, will take effect May 1, 2018. We have posted the draft Constitution and Bylaws documents on our website. If you have read through the URGSA Constitution and/or the URGSA Bylaws, please take the time to provide us with your feedback by sending an email to by Monday, April 10, 2017 at 11:59 pm. To provide us with your feedback, identify the specific clause that you are referring to for each document (e.g., Article 2.1; Bylaw 1.4.1) and then provide your written feedback regarding that clause in a clear and concise manner. For example, feedback could be provided in the following manner: “Article 3.3.6—I think there should be a limit to how many terms any member may serve on the executive. Specifically, I don’t think a member should serve more than 2 terms on the executive.”
