VOLUME 11 No. 1 | JANUARY 12, 2020

Candidacies and elections

December 22 was the deadline for submitting candidacies for various positions, which means that we are now able to announce outcomes for the following people who will start work on January 14, 2021:

  • Maude Fréchette (CISSS de Laval) was elected by acclamation as a provincial representative for the Côte-Nord.
  • Jean-Christophe Côté Benoît (CIUSSS MCQ) was elected by acclamation as a replacement for a provincial representative position for Mauricie−Centre-du-Québec.
  • Mélanie Bergeron (CIUSSS MCQ) was elected by acclamation to the committee for a reserve fund.

Two people, Stéphanie Fortin (Montérégie-Centre) and Caroline Émond (IUCPQ), submitted their candidacy for a position on the provincial feminist action committee. As a consequence, there will be an election. Voting will take place from January 12 to 14, 2021.

No candidacies were received for replacements for provincial representative positions for Montréal West Island or Montérégie-Centre.

For more information, see documents in the members-only section of the website under Outils/Instances/Conseil général/Documents CG virtuel 12 au 14 janvier 2021.


It's lanyard time

The time has come to think about your next order for lanyards – the ones identifying members’ occupations and the APTS lanyards with three clips. February 1 is the deadline for sending your order to commande@aptsq.com. You’ll find the interactive form under Outils/Boutique en ligne/Produits APTS.

An invoice will be sent to you around April 15 – please don’t try to pay before you get it! You can make your payment by cheque or electronic transfer.

If you have a question about ordering lanyards or promotional tools, write to commande@aptsq.com.

Newly elected members of local teams

Newly elected members of local teams (delegates and members of the executive) will be offered a half-day Zoom training session, available on six dates from February 9 to 11 and February 23 to 25. The training will help them get to know the APTS organization and how it works, and will provide information about their new role, responsibilities, and tasks.

To make sure you get a spot on the date that suits you, go to the registration section on the GEMS intranet portal.

If you have questions or comments, please write to Joelle Cuillerier (jcuillerier@aptsq.com).
