Dates of existence



In 1982, non-academic staff requested incorporation under the Societies Act as the “Grant MacEwan Community College Non-Academic Staff Association." NASA was officially recognized on January 20, 1983 by the Board of Governors. The purpose of the association was to represent the interests of support and supervisory staff. The first executive committee consisted of Barry White, President, Len Rust, Vice-President, Ilene Nessel, Treasurer, Madelaine Boston, Secretary, Barb Bech, Director, Peter Jenkins, Director, Sharon Schnell, Director, and Joy Shaw, Director. On June 13, 2001 the name changed to MacEwan Staff Association (MSA), and on July 10, 2006 it became a union when the Alberta Labour Relations Board granted certification as a bargaining agent.
