Special Meeting of OASW Members
Join us for the Special Meeting of OASW Members to be held virtually on Friday, November 13, 2020, from 12:00 – 1:00 PM

New Structure: What It Means to Members
In May this year, at our Annual General Meeting, we announced an exciting and innovative new structure to better support local member engagement across Ontario.
Our new structure supports the transition from Regional and Branch structures to a Local Engagement Ambassador program.
The new structure will facilitate an increase in local and provincial professional development opportunities for members. Our new model will enable local engagement that is responsive to geographical challenges, increasing transparency on local performance and spending, and decrease administration for volunteers through dedicated provincial supports.
OASW bylaws have been significantly revised to not only incorporate the changes in our structure, but also to simplify and clarify the language. These bylaw amendments have been approved by the Board of Directors and are being submitted for ratification at the Special Meeting of Members.
