SUPRA members can attend council meetings
SUPRA members have the right to sit in, observe, and speak at any SUPRA Council meeting, or any meeting of a SUPRA Standing Committee. Members also have the right to add items of discussion to the Agenda of any Council or Standing Committee meeting.
Only SUPRA Councillors can vote at council or Standing Executive Committees meetings. All SUPRA members are entitled to vote at Standing Working Committees meetings.
We encourage members to attend and participate in all SUPRA meetings. This as an important way to have the voices of postgraduates heard and represented.

Notice of meetings and agenda
All meetings of SUPRA Council are required to have at least seven (7) days’ notice. All Standing Committee meetings require at least five (5) days’ notice. Agendas and additional documents for council meetings are circulated at least three (3) days prior to the meeting. Agendas for Standing Committee meetings are usually circulated with the notice of meeting, and updated prior to the meeting.
No confidential documents are circulated electronically. Confidential documents may be accessed in person at the SUPRA Offices. SUPRA members must request permission from the President; councillors may access confidential documents at any time.
All members and councillors are encouraged to read and consider the documents prior to the meeting. This will facilitate discussion and speed up meetings.
If any member or councillor is unable to access documents or agendas, they are encouraged to contact the SUPRA Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Quorum is the minimum number of people required in attendance for a formal meeting to be legitimately held. If quorum is not met within thirty (30) minutes of the appointed time, then the meeting shall lapse and must be rescheduled.
Quorum for a meeting of SUPRA Council is nine (9) councillors.
Quorum for a Standing Executive Committee meeting is four (4) councillors, where at least one present is not a member of the Executive (The President, the Vice President, the Education Officer, the Secretary and the Treasurer).
Quorum for a Standing Working Committee meeting is at least three (3) councillors, where at least one present is a member of the Executive.
