Call for Nominations: Central Regional Vice President
The Executive Board (EB) met this week and discussed the recent retirement notice given by David Doerksen, effective Monday, January 4th, 2021. Under the current circumstances (COVID-19) the EB passed a resolution suspending section 6.2 (b) of the Union’s Policy Book. The suspension of the clause will allow nominations to be made without a Branch resolution as Branch meetings cannot be held in many provinces due to COVID-19.
In consultation with the Elections Committee, the timelines for replacement of the Central Regional Vice President (RVP) will be as follows:
- Nomination period for the position opens Monday, January 4, 2021 at 12:00 ET and will close on Monday, January 11, 2021 at 12:00 ET.
- Electronic voting for the position will commence on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at 12:00 ET and will close at 12:00 ET on Monday, February 1, 2021.
Nominations must be accompanied by the signatures of 20 active CATCA members in the Central Region. The nomination must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and be received not later than Monday, January 11, 2021 at 12:00 ET.

As passed by the membership at Convention 2016 in Halifax, incumbents will be required to sign the Non-Compete/Non-Disclosure Agreement as part of the nomination process. A copy of the Agreement is linked here.
