Conference registration is now open! Register online here.
On behalf of the Ontario Student Trustees’ Association (OSTA-AECO), we are pleased to extend an invitation to student trustees across the province for our first conference of the academic year, our Fall General Meeting (FGM). The FGM will be taking place online from Thursday, October 22 to Sunday, October 25, 2020. OSTA-AECO’s FGM will help student trustees build the fundamental skills required to be successful in their positions. With knowledgeable keynote speakers, round table discussions, and seminars explaining boardroom etiquette, this conference is an excellent way for student trustees to learn more about their position alongside like-minded individuals, and network with fellow student trustees from across the province. A portion of this conference will also be spent familiarizing student trustees with OSTA-AECO as an organization, and the structure of Ontario’s education system. Student trustees will have the opportunity to meet with OSTA-AECO’s partners, connect with student trustee alumni mentors and work within their respective board councils.
The FGM will develop partnerships/connections between student trustees across the province to allow for further collaboration and diversity in promoting student advocacy. OSTA-AECO places great emphasis on the importance of supporting student trustees throughout their terms by providing the tools, resources, and professional development they need to succeed. The FGM will be an important transitional aid for your student trustee(s), and we are confident that they will immensely benefit from their participation. Attached you will find the conference information package and preliminary agenda. Please take the time to review this information and register by the specified date.
We are aware of the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic has had and will have on the terms of student trustees across the province. We will continue to keep the safety and well being of student trustees our number one priority. As we move through these unprecedented times together, our board of directors will continue to monitor the circumstances and make informed decisions using expert recommendations.
On behalf of OSTA-AECO, we would like to sincerely thank you for your ongoing support and for continuing to foster student voice within your board. We hope to see your student trustee(s) online in October.
