Convention 2016

HEU's 30th biennial convention was held October 30 to November 4, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver.

HEU’s biennial convention is the supreme policy-making body of the union.

Held every two years, the convention brings together delegates from all locals across the province to collectively determine the union’s priorities and course of direction.

During the convention, delegates discuss and vote on resolutions and any proposed changes to the union’s constitution and by-laws that have been brought forward by their locals.

Delegates also elect the union’s Provincial Executive and ratify the hiring, or reappointment, of HEU’s secretary-business manager.
