START A Working Group

Want to start a working group?

First, discuss your Working Group idea with NSPIRG staff by dropping in the office, Room 306 in the Dalhousie SUB, or by sending an email to info@nspirg.ca or calling (902) 494-6662.

Next, fill out an Working Group Application (below) and submit it by email or at the office. Applicants may also be asked to make a presentation to the Board of Directors (BOD) of NSPIRG.

NSPIRGWorkingGroupApplication _2017

Working Groups will be approved if:

  • the applicants commit to the responsibilities listed below;
  • the BOD is convinced that the applicants have the capacity and vision to do so;
  • there are not any obvious redundancies with already existing Working Groups.

If approved, members of the new Working Group will be required to:

  • Attend an orientation session on Working Group responsibilities and access to NSPIRG resources.
  • Within one month of being approved, hold a meeting and submit to NSPIRG staff an annual summary of plans for the upcoming year. This will consist of your vision, mission, goals and activities, including a timeline of projects/events and a budget. NSPIRG staff can help you do this. Please contact NSPIRG staff for assistance/questions with planning and budgeting at info@nspirg.ca.

Contact us for a copy of the Working Groups policy and details on their relationship to NSPIRG.
