AUPE's Governing Body

AUPE's ultimate governing body is its Convention. Each Local is entitled to send one delegate for every 100 members to attend the Annual Convention, which is usually held each year in Edmonton. At Convention, policies are established, the budget is determined and, in election years, Executive Committee officers are elected by a vote of the delegates.

AUPE Executive Committee

The Executive Committee consists of the President, the Executive Secretary-Treasurer and six (6) Vice Presidents. This Committee shall act as the Executive body of the Union between meetings of the Provincial Executive, and shall be responsible for the operation and management of the Union and the implementation of Union Policy.

In odd-numbered years, Convention elects an eight-member Executive Committee - made up of the President, the Executive Secretary-Treasurer and six Vice-Presidents. The President and the Executive Secretary-Treasurer serve as full-time officers of the union while Vice-Presidents get time off with pay as required. The President is AUPE's full-time chief executive officer and spokesperson, assigning duties and responsibilities to other executive officers. The Executive Secretary-Treasurer is the full-time chief financial officer, responsible for financial records and ensuring that expenditures comply with the budget passed by Convention.
