The Elections and Resolutions Committee is in need of TR and LoP volunteers!
April 06, 2017
Our National Executive Committee is the body responsible for overseeing the day-to-day activities at CAPE. It’s made up of members just like you, who are elected by the membership. In order to perform its work, the NEC relies on input from a number of sub-committees made up of CAPE members who are interested in the life and future of their union. Of these, the Elections and Resolutions Committee is particularly in need of volunteers – especially from members in the TR and Library of Parliament groups – because it currently does not have the number of members required under the our constitution for the continued execution of its mandate.
