Board of Directors Nominations

The ACA will be seeking nominations for the following positions for the 2018-2019 term* to be considered at the 2017 AGM:

  • Vice-President
  • Secretary
  • Director at Large 1
  • Director at Large 2

Full Position Descriptions can be found here (pdf). Click here for the ACA Conflict of Interest Policy (PDF).

Directors must be individual members in good standing and their nomination must be supported by five (5) ACA members. Those nominated must also provide a brief biography that will be made available to members in advance of the AGM. The ACA welcomes more inclusive representation in the composition of its Board and Committees and encourages the nomination of all qualified individuals including women, members of racialized communities, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity. 

Please submit the name of the nominee, qualifications of the nominee (including previous ACA or other volunteer work), and name of supporting nominators using the Board of Directors Nominations form (pdf). Nominations must be received no later than April 28, 2017.

Nominations and questions should be directed to the ACA Governance Committee 

*The term of office for these positions is the 2018 and 2019 calendar years (with the exception of Director at Large 2 which is for the 2018 calendar year only). 

For this election, we will continue with the six-month shadowing period for Directors-Elect. During this period the Director-Elect will shadow the current office holder, participate in Board meetings or calls and attend an orientation and planning meeting in the fall to aid in an efficient transfer of duties.
