Please see attached the schedule and Zoom links for our conference on Friday, June 11th! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact TGSA directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or Patrick Nolin, VP Conference at email@example.com.
Hi all, I hope everyone is well and looking forward to the summer months ahead!
At the end of every academic year, it is customary for TGSA to host an AGM where we discuss with members what we did throughout the school year. Due to the pandemic, we were unable to host one. Instead, we decided to create “A Year in Review” poster that discusses everything we would have talked about during the AGM — you can find the attachment below. As a courtesy to students, we hosted an informal Zoom meeting on Monday, May 31st for anyone who wanted to drop in and ask the board questions. As we move into the summer, TGSA board members will be taking time off, however, if there are any urgent issues please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, don’t forget about our upcoming conference on June 11th entitled, “Traditioning Sources for Contemporary Theological Engagement.” You can find more details by visiting the event page on Facebook: https://fb.me/e/1qFGI4hTs.
Thank you, everyone! We look forward to hopefully seeing your faces on campus in the fall.
*Please note that the positions of concentration reps (such as Systematic Theology Rep) will not be filled during this time as these positions are up for review by the TGSA Board.
Candidates must be nominated by two of their peers and be willing to serve. College reps must also be registered at the college in question. Nominees will receive either notice of their acclamation or details regarding the election process (if necessary) at the end of the nomination period which is May 1, 2021—you can expect an email the first week of May.
This is a notice for you all that TGSA will be inviting nominations for positions on its Board of Representatives. The nomination period will begin on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 and will end on May 1, 2021.

Hi everyone, we hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!
TGSA would like to invite you to our last event of the year: Getting (Back) on Track for Writing: A Time and Task Management Workshop. As graduate students, we might find that dedicated time for writing is often placed on the “back burner”, as our focus is spread across several other commitments each semester: coursework, teaching and grading, research, and other tasks that add up. Moreover, managing our time and projects across several platforms – and even devices – can result in fragmented workflows. Do you find yourself in this situation, in addition to navigating issues around motivation, procrastination, and/or perfectionism?
If so, join us Friday, April 16th from 1:00-2:00 pm where we will discuss practical strategies to get (re-)started on your writing, maintain momentum without burning out, set realistic milestones that work for you (and your supervisor), and deal with any distractions that might come your way. Also bring your questions and feel free to share your past experiences so that we can troubleshoot any roadblocks together as a group.
Our facilitator, Yaseen Ali, is a learning strategist at U of T who works with students on all areas of academic performance, ranging from metacognition and effective study techniques to co-creating personalized time management approaches. He is also completing his Ph.D. part-time in the Language and Literacies Education program at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.
