Conference & AGM


Join us for The Writers' Union of Canada’s 2021 Annual General Meeting and Post-AGM Social! All members are encouraged to register and attend.

Please note:

  • These events are open to current TWUC members only.
  • There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.
  • You must register separately for each event (AGM and Post-AGM Social).
  • Registration deadline: May 25, 2021.

The AGM is your chance to get a big-picture portrait of Union activities and priorities, to hear about the work of your National Council, and to participate in our representative democracy. The meeting will begin with a keynote presentation from Access Copyright’s Chief Business Affairs Officer Claire Gillis (30 min) followed by our Union business session (90 min). Reports will be circulated ahead of the AGM to give members time to review the materials and submit any questions in advance.

After the business is wrapped up, log on to the Post-AGM Social to network and socialize with fellow members from across the country. Members can choose from the following breakout rooms:

  • Meet the Chair, hosted by Rhea Tregebov
  • Meet Your Regional Rep, hosted by Regional Reps
  • New Members Room (for members who have joined since the last AGM), hosted by John Degen
  • TWUC Dance Party, hosted by Heather Wood

TECH TIP: Members using the latest version of Zoom will be able to move between breakout rooms at the Post-AGM Social. More details will be shared closer to the date with those who have registered. Get details about how to update Zoom on your device.
