What is the commitment for Assembly members?

(such as meeting frequency, length of term, etc.)

The term of the Assembly is for a year, starting in December 2023 or January 2024. We ask that the residents interested in being a part of this Assembly be willing to attend 10 meetings a year, one every month except for summer (July and August), as well as a kick-off dinner with Council to launch the new group.

Meetings will run for 3 to 4 hours each, and will be held in person. Because the meetings will focus on discussion and dialogue, a hybrid format is not possible at this time.

A variety of supports will be offered to make your participation easier, including reimbursement of any direct expenses, stipends for childcare / elder care, and compensation for low-income members or those who must miss paid work to attend meetings.
