9 Governance of the BCTF The BCTF is a democratically structured organization and the governance chart identifies the groups or bodies related to governance. Members Members of the BCTF ultimately determine the decisions and directions of the BCTF in two very important ways: 1. Members through locals elect delegates to the BCTF Annual General Meeting. The AGM makes key decisions for the organization and elects the Executive Committee. 2. Members through locals elect Local Representatives which make up the Representative Assembly. The RA has key decision making responsibilities. Locals Locals have the responsibility for acting on behalf of members regarding local matters. Members in locals elect their local president and executive which guide the affairs of the local. Annual General Meeting The Annual General Meeting is comprised of delegates and Local Representatives elected by members through locals, and the 11 members of the Executive Committee. There are approximately 670 voting delegates at an Annual General Meeting. The AGM elects the Executive Committee, determines the fee, approves any changes to the by-laws, establishes priorities for the next year and makes the significant policy decisions of the Federation. and spell out what each level of decision making is authorized to do. The by-laws of the BCTF have to be followed by all bodies of the organization, including the AGM. Only the AGM can amend the bylaws, and only then with a 75% majority of delegates voting in favour. The by-laws are found in Part 2 of this guide and spell out in more detail the role of each of the decision making bodies. Representative Assembly The Representative Assembly meets three times a year and has the specific responsibilities of approving a budget and electing the Judicial Council and Committee of Ombudspersons. The RA also makes policy and procedure decisions for the Federation. Executive Committee The Executive Committee of the BCTF is elected by the AGM and consists of 11 members. Three of them serve in a full-time capacity: the President, First Vice-President,and Second Vice-President. The Executive Committee has overall responsibility for the running of the Federation. It meets monthly with additional meetings as necessary. The Executive Committee is the employer of BCTF staff and determines what work will be done in any given year. The Executive Committee also has responsibility for the creation and appointment of any advisory committees or task forces. President The President of the Federation has responsibility for overall supervision of the affairs of the organization in between meetings of the Executive Committee. Constitution and by-laws The constitution and by-laws establish the rules by which the organization is run. The by-laws establish the division of responsibilities among the major decision making bodies Executive Committee President Glen Hansman O: C: First Vice-President Teri Mooring O: C: Second Vice-President Clint Johnston O: C: Members-at-Large Rory Brown O: C: Rae Figursky S: C: Carole Gordon S: C: Shawn Gough O: C: Carolyn Pena O: Jody Polukoshko S: C: Robin Tosczak S: C: Kip Wood S: C:

10 Staff organization The Federation employs about 140 people to develop and deliver the programs and services that are determined by the decision-making bodies of the organization. There are three groups of staff: administrative, support, and excluded. Administrative staff are primarily former teachers who were active in the organization and hired to carry out major program development and service. Support staff comprise the largest component of staff and perform a wide range of tasks including support to administrative staff and officers and technical and logistical support to a number of programs and initiatives. These two groups of staff are organized into two separate unions; the administrative staff which are affiliated to Unifor Local 464 and the support staff which are members of the Teachers Federation Employees Union. There are five excluded staff who undertake management oversight and human resources functions. The staff are organized into six divisions and a legal department that are shown on the staff organization chart. Each division has a Director and a specific set of responsibilities with regard to programs and services that are carried out through the division. The staff listing by division identifies some of the major responsibilities in each division. The Executive Director by virtue of the by-laws has overall responsibility for the conduct and organization of staff and for the overall assignment of work. The Executive Director is responsible directly to the Executive Committee and on a day-to-day basis consults with the president. 5

The annual fee shall consist of: (a) an amount set by the Annual General Meeting of the federation, payable to the federation; (b) for those members who are members of locals, an amount set by a general meeting of each local, payable to the local. 4.2 The membership year for active members shall be from July 1 and shall end on June 30 next following. For active members, the fee is due and payable in installments at the end of each month, proportionate to the period of employment of the member during the membership year. Active members shall execute authorizations for payroll deduction of fees and levies. Active members are deemed to be in good standing upon execution of the said authorization. For associate members, the membership year shall be the 12 months following the date of application for associate membership accompanied by payment of fees at the rate currently in force, except for associate members who are uncertificated teacher replacements, in which case the membership year and method of payment of fees and levies shall be the same as for active members. 4.3 For expenses in connection with the obtaining of the objectives of the federation, any general meeting may make a levy upon the active membership of the federation. In the event that the Collective Bargaining Defence Fund, established by the federation, has a balance of less than $5,000,000.00, the Representative Assembly may make a levy upon the active membership of the federation of an amount necessary to immediately restore the balance in that fund to the sum of $5,000, Any levy made on the membership pursuant to this by-law shall be paid by each active member on or before a date to be determined by the general meeting or Executive Committee, and any member who fails to comply with this requirement shall not be in good standing until such levy is paid. Notwithstanding anything contained in these by-laws, no levy on the membership of the federation shall be made for the purpose of financing political parties and/or election campaigns of political parties. 4.4 The membership fee established by a local includes, and shall be deemed in all cases to include, the fees and levies of the federation. The annual fee and any levy of the federation or any levy of a local of the federation are debts due to the federation or the local, as the case may be, and may be collected with costs of suit in the name of the federation or the local, as the case may be, in any court of appropriate jurisdiction.

One Member-at- Large position shall be designated to be held by a racialized member and one shall be designated to be held by an Aboriginal member. The designated positions shall have the same term and role as the nondesignated positions. The Executive Committee positions are elected by the Annual General Meeting and shall take office on the following July 1. Each member of the Executive Committee shall be a member in good standing entitled to vote, in accordance with By-law 1.1. An Executive Committee member may be removed from office under the provisions of By-law 1.7 or By-law 7. (17 AGM, p. 22) 5.1(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, each member-at-large shall be elected for a term of two years. If for any reason a memberat-large leaves the position after only one year, a successor shall be elected to fill the unexpired portion of the two-year term. 5.1(c) The Immediate Past-President serves in a one-year, supernumerary position on the Executive Committee. In the event that a President shall be elected to an additional year of office, the Executive Committee position of immediate past-president shall be vacated and an additional member-at-large shall be elected for a one-year term. (17 AGM, p. 21) 5.1(d) All members of the Executive Committee shall be eligible for re-election subject to the equity criteria established in Bylaw 5.1(a).

The President shall call a meeting of the Executive Committee on demand of a majority of its members. 5.3 Subject to By-laws 6, 8, 9 and 14, the Executive Committee shall exercise all the powers of the Federation, the direction and supervision of the business and the conduct of the affairs of the Federation. 12
