APT Advocacy Committee

The URFA APT Advo­ca­cy Com­mit­tee (APTAC) rep­re­sents the inter­ests of all APT mem­bers at the First Nations Uni­ver­si­ty of Cana­da and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Regi­na, includ­ing its satel­lite campuses.

The APTAC will under­take lob­by­ing, edu­ca­tion, action, mobi­liza­tion, con­sul­ta­tion and oth­er such involve­ment as nec­es­sary in order to ensure APT mem­bers are aware of, and are afford­ed, their rights as mem­bers of URFA. Fur­ther, the APTAC will ensure APT mem­ber­ship is apprised of URFA activities.

The com­mit­tee is open to a max­i­mum of nine APT mem­bers and will encour­age rep­re­sen­ta­tion from First Nations Uni­ver­si­ty of Cana­da and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Regi­na and its satel­lite cam­pus­es, with diver­si­ty across admin­is­tra­tive units.

Terms of office shall be for two years and terms will be stag­gered in the first year. Mem­ber­ship can be renewed.
