This year’s Douglas Students’ Union (DSU) Annual General Meeting took place on February 19 at the DSU Lounge at the New Westminster campus.
BC Representative for the Canadian Federation of Students Jenelle Davies was the speaker for the AGM, listing out motions from the day’s agenda. Additional speakers included DSU Executive Director Tim Rattel and Member-at-Large Derek van Deursen.
Motions passed included adopting the previous years’ financial statement, which showed several surpluses to be used in situations of emergency, including the recently changed dental insurance provider for Douglas College students.
Davies also stated that over 6,000 post cards had been sent to the Ministry of Education as part of the ongoing “Squash the Squeeze” campaign, which hopes to lower student tuition costs across Canada.
The AGM ended with a Canucks tickets giveaway, which a female Douglas student won in a draw.
