Presidents’ Message

This is to advise that the Newfoundland and Labrador Public Sector Pensioners’ Association will be holding its Annual General Meeting 2020 in virtual format through our Zoom platform.  Over the summer months, the Planning Committee has considered and worked on which type of meeting might be feasible (in-person or virtual) and as time was fast encroaching upon us, it became necessary to make a decision so that planning could proceed without having to consider two options. While we realize this meeting format might be challenging for some of our members, it does provide the Association with a unique opportunity to have more provincial reach, engage more of our membership, and protect everyone’s health in a safe socially distanced venue.

Here are the particulars you will need to participate in this year’s AGM:  

WHEN: Thursday, October 15, 2020, at 2:00 PM (virtual meeting room to open at 1:30 PM)

HOW: To participate in this form of the meeting, you will need to indicate your intent to attend in advance. While normally an AGM does not require pre-registration, you must  indicate your intent to attend this year by contacting Cheryl or Liz at the NLPSPA Office at (709) 754-5730, 1-800-563-4188, or email:  pensioners@npspa.ca , no later than September 30, 2020.  Access to the internet will be needed for this meeting, so you can receive the link that will allow you to access the meeting through the Zoom platform.  If you are attending, all necessary documentation will be circulated in advance of the meeting.

On our NLPSPA website is a Call for Nominations and Notice of Resolutions. Please review these and consider the included invitations.

We very much appreciate your cooperation with these special asks (pre-registration, pre-submission of Resolutions and Nominations) for this year, as we cannot publicly advise the connections for our Zoom network given the need to protect the security of our virtual system.

Continuing good wishes for an enjoyable and safe summer.
