To prepare all Student Trustees for the year ahead, and to collaboratively work on initiatives that enhance Ontario’s education system.
Accommodations are the responsibility of each delegate and school board. A block of rooms has been reserved under Ontario Student Trustees’ Association at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre. Student Trustees are strongly encouraged to stay at the hotel where the conference is taking place for supervision purposes.
What to Bring
Student Trustees must bring the following to the conference:
– Ticket or proof of ticket purchase
– Signed Code of Conduct form
– A completed credit card authorization form (required for hotel check-in)
All meals are the responsibility of the individual delegate and their board.
A finalized agenda will be included in the conference package upon arrival. A tentative agenda will be released shortly.
All conference activities taking place at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre require business attire. Adherence to the dress code shows respect for the responsibilities fulfilled as Student Trustees.
OSTA-AECO is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all members. As a result, all student trustee attendees are required to sign and return a Code of Conduct during registration. Failure to comply to the items listed in the agreement will result in the immediate contact of the student trustee’s Director of Education and parent or guardian.
All of OSTA-AECO’s conferences are supervised by adults from the association’s Board of Directors, who serve in accordance with strict supervision procedures. OSTA-AECO’s Board of Directors is comprised of seven past Student Trustees, appointed by the OSTA-AECO Executive Council on a biennial basis. While they maintain a legal and fiduciary responsibility to the organization, they also serve as supervision during conferences. There will always be a male and a female supervisor on duty, 24 hours a day for the duration of the conference.
These measures ensure that all school boards may send their student trustees to OSTA-AECO’s conferences in confidence, knowing that their safety is of utmost importance.
All questions or concerns about OSTA-AECO’s conferences can be directed to our Professional Development Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
