as there will be food and drink after the GA.

* Whereas it is conventionally considered appropriate and moral practice that institutions recognize the contribution of deceased current or former members of its community;

Whereas the VCTA values collegiality and community;

Whereas teachers want the opportunity to honor their colleagues at memorial services;

That Association Council recommend that the GA demand that the College re-establish their practice of informing members via email as promptly as possible about any deceased colleagues or retired colleagues.

** Whereas there has been an allocation deficit in Volet 2 (Article 8-4.01b)) of the allocation project for the last few years;

Whereas the VCTA has grieved these deficits;

Whereas the College has proposed possible measures to absorb the deficit, including cuts to departmental coordination;

Whereas Departmental Coordination is already under-allocated;

Whereas the College has over-allocated program coordination for at least the last six years;

That Association Council recommend that the General Assembly mandate faculty members of CRT to demand that departmental coordination not be cut and to propose that, if the College chooses to allocate more than 10% of coordination release time to programs, that the additional resources for program activities be allocated from other envelopes.
