Upcoming Event: GENERAL MEETING DEC. 4TH!!!

Hey Everyone!

The PTSA would like to invite you to our final event for the year, our first-semester GENERAL MEETING.

Date: Tuesday December 4, 2012

Location: MSB 4227

Time: 5pm-7pm

At the meeting we hope to hear your comments about the Pharmacology and Toxicology courses that you have taken this semester, as well as discuss the changes we are hoping to make to the PTSA Constitution.  We will then wrap up the meeting by voting on the proposed changes.

We are proposing a few changes to the constitution; however, these changes cannot come into effect UNLESS they are voted on by you, our student members. We ask that you review the changes we are proposing to the constitution to ensure that you are aware of what they are and what they mean to the future role of the PTSA at UofT. The old and proposed constitutions will be available shortly on our website at ptsa.sa.utoronto.ca as well as our Facebook page at: www. facebook.com/UofTPTSA.  Copies of both versions of the constitution will also be available for viewing at the meeting, so you can review it then.

We will have treats and coffee at the meeting and we will also be selling our official PTSA hoodies ($40).  After the meeting is over, we’re going to be heading out for an end-of-semester celebration!  All are welcome.

See you there,

Your PTSA Exec

We’ll even be providing some  FREE pizza and subs for you to enjoy, so come check it out!

Academic Seminar Time: 5-6pm

The second event is our Games Night! Right after the seminar, we will  be walking over to Sidney Smith where we are going to relax, have fun  and enjoy MORE FREE FOOD, not to mention have a 50/50 raffle!
