Call for Nominations: President

June 8, 2020

Call for Nominations: President

The Executive Board (EB) met last week and discussed the recent retirement notice given by Peter Duffey, effective Wednesday June 10th, 2020. 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 President will be as follows:

  • Nomination period for the position opens, Monday, June 15, 2020 at 12:00 EDT and will close on Monday, June 22, 2020 at 12:00 EDT
  • Electronic voting for the position will commence on July 8, 2020 at 12:00 EDT and will close at 12:00 EDT on Monday July 13, 2020.

Nominations must be accompanied by signatures from 50 active members of the Association, at least five (5) of which must be from a Branch other than the nominating Branch. The nomination must be emailed to and be received not later than Monday June 22, 2020 at 12:00 EDT.

A copy of the nomination form is linked here.

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.

In Solidarity,

André Martel
Elections Committee Chair
