Several Saskatoon area constituencies will be meeting together to have their founding conventions on February 28th!
If you are a member of the new constituencies of Martensville-Blairmore, Rosetown-Delisle, Saskatoon Centre, Saskatoon Silverspring, Saskatoon Stonebridge, Saskatoon Westview, or Warman, join us online for this fun meeting to kick off our new constituencies.
Betty Nippi-Albright, MLA for Saskatoon Centre, will be our guest speaker. We’ll hear our guest speaker together, and then break out into individual constituencies to do our founding business.
Please attend this special Founding Convention to guarantee a successful beginning for our new constituency association! We hope to see you there.
For more information, contact Robert at (306) 381-9764 or email [email protected].
Why founding conventions?
Every 10 years, constituency boundaries are updated based on population in the recent census. During the fall 2022 sitting of the Legislative Assembly, the Government of Saskatchewan passed a Bill accepting the new electoral boundaries proposed by the Saskatchewan Boundaries Commission. As a result of these changes, constituencies are holding Founding Conventions to get started on the new boundaries. The business at a Founding Convention is to meet the people who will be working together to elect the NDP in a new constituency and elect a constituency executive.
Who can come?
Any NDP member living within the boundaries of the new ridings is welcome. You do need a 2023 membership to attend. If you need to renew, please bring your membership up to date by February 27th. (Normally we’d say that you can renew at the door, but since this is an online meeting, please take care of your renewal in advance.) New members can also sign up the same way, but the deadline for new members to join and be able to vote is February 21, 2023.
