Meetings of the Committee are held at the call of the Chair. Meetings shall normally be convened a minimum of once per month between September and June in non-bargaining years and in bargaining years at such times as to allow co-ordination and review of the bargaining process.

If a member misses three consecutive meetings or more than half of the meetings held in any academic year, or if a member does not participate in the regular work of the committee, the Committee may recommend to the TRUFA Executive to decide that that representative’s seat becomes vacant until such time as a replacement member can be elected.
