Local Presidents are reminded to send in the names of their Voting & Alternate Delegates as well as Local Observers as soon as they are available.


  • Registration for Annual Council will take place in the lobby of the Hotel Halifax from 4:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. Anyone not able to register by 6:45 can register at the Halifax Convention Centre in room 501.
  • All sessions will be held on the Ballroom Level of the Halifax Convention Center in Ballroom B2 & B3.
  • The HCC has rules concerning outside food and beverages for conferences held at the Convention Centre. If the food and beverage can be provided by the convention centre the locals would have to order it from them. In our case they are willing to permit small table snacks to be brought in by the respective locals but food, soft drinks, and whole fruit would all be required to be ordered through them as those are standard items on their menu.   Small table snacks is not something they provide so they are permitting them to be brought in.
  • The President’s reception will be held Friday evening immediately following the 1st session of Council at the Hotel Halifax in the Baronet Ballroom.

Additional Information:

  • The New Delegate Orientation Session will be provided by way of a webinar which will be posted on the NSTU website. A link will be emailed to new delegates in April.
  • The Council Workbook will once again be offered to delegates electronically (PDF and flipbook versions). During the online registration process delegates will be asked to select their preference of a paper copy of the Council Workbook or an electronic copy of the Council Workbook (resolution 2014-42). Numbers for printing the Workbook will be based on these responses.
