VIDEO: The CUSW Constitution and How Convention is at the Center of it.
Did you know CUSW is governed by the Principles, Articles and Policies found in the Constitution? And Did you know that 2015 is a Convention Year?
That's right. Early next year, member Delegates will come together at the Convention and vote on some of the smallest and the largest issues affecting the Union – and ultimately form the basis of the 2015 Constitution.
In anticipation of this event, we've prepared a short and informative 5 minute video that details the history and relationship between the Convention, that comes every 3 years, and the Constitution.
Your CUSW Constitution and Convention go hand in hand. Here's how.
