After speaking to Captain Ed Smith the Committee makes the following recommendation regarding UTE’s relationship with the International Children’s Awareness (ICA):

Recommendation 1:

Be it resolved that UTE;

  • Create a line item in our budget for the “ICA International Fund” ~$10,000 including promotional items;
  • Make an annual donation of $500 to ICA;
  • Advise our members to use the United Way to direct some or all of their donation to ICA
  • Sponsor a student who wants to go with Captain Smith to Africa.  This would be approximately $5000 and the Honours and Awards Committee would solicit names and pick the person;
  • Subsidize a member with $2500 to go with Captain Smith to Africa
  • Develop a joint promotional item(s) with ICA and a portion of the sales would go to ICA.

Recommendation 2:

Be it resolved that the Modules of the PSAC Local Officers Kit identified by the Executive Committee be approved for use of the UTE Education Fund and;

Be it further resolved that the Guidelines for use of the Education Fund be as follows:

  • If the education portion of a Regional session put on by the RVP lasts a full day or more then they may expend 50% of the expense from their Education monies.
  • If the education portion of a Regional session put on by the RVP lasted only an AM or PM (less than a day but at least half a day) then they may expend 25% of the expense from their Education monies.

In Solidarity,

Betty Bannon,
