PRESENTATIONS TO FULL ASSEMBLY
On September 11, 2004, the full 161-member Assembly will hear nine outstanding presenters.
A special committee of the Assembly met on July 10 to select those people — whose presentations given at public hearings were deemed of particular merit — who will be invited to present to the entire Assembly.
The committee selected, by consensus, nine presenters and all nine have accepted. In the list below, their names link to their submissions or to info about their presentations at public hearings.
Presentations will take place from 9am – 4pm on September 11, at the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue in downtown Vancouver (580 West Hastings Street).
» SELECTION PROCESS
For the historical record, here is how the plenary presenters were selected.
In order to be considered for a slot in the plenary presentations, presenters had to apply to the Citizens’ Assembly or be recommended by members attending the public hearing at which they presented.
All applications for a plenary presentation were reviewed by a provincially representative Selection Committee comprised of 11 Assembly members. In making its selection, the Committee considered the following criteria:
The plenary presentations, taken as a whole, will offer a fair and balanced representation of submissions and public views, regions, interest groups and electoral systems.
Assembly members attending public hearings may recommend that a presentation be considered for a plenary presentation subject to the approval of the presenter(s).
Successful applicants who face significant travel costs to attend the plenary presentation may apply for assistance to the Selection Committee.
Here is the Assembly policy re: plenary presentations, as approved by the Assembly members on February 22, 2004.
