TGSA AGM & “A Year in Review”

Hi all,

Typically, the AGM is held in-person at the end of every school year. However, because of the pandemic we have chosen to do things a bit differently. As some of you may recall, last year I sent out “A Year in Review” which explained what the board did during the 2020/2021 academic year; and then we held an AGM online which was more of a Q&A/suggestion period for TST graduate students. We are doing the same thing this year as well. 

Attached in this email is TGSA’s “A Year in Review” for the 2021/2022 academic year — you will find my president’s report, the treasurer’s report and also the names of the incoming board members. The AGM will be held on Friday, May 6, 2022 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm via Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/89454990210; and the format will be the same as last year — an informal Q&A/suggestion period. 

In the early evening of May 6, we would also like to propose a social outing at a pub for students in Toronto/GTA. Please write your name down here if you are interested in this: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-BMWnXdmNadjlS4i235GW_8gZoswiwjo11wjuWM7Ymw/edit?usp=sharing.

Any questions or concerns please reach out to me at mia.theocharis@mail.utoronto.ca

Best,
Mia Theocharis, TGSA President
