Nominations Are Open!

DDD

 

It is the most wonderful time of the year! No, we don’t mean Christmas or when the kids go back to school. It is that time of year when we take stock of all the wonderful things our current Executive have helped the Chapter to achieve and reflect on the skills we need to keep growing and moving forward.

As your Nominating Committee it is our honour to put forward a slate of Executive Committee candidates for your consideration at the upcoming AGM. Do you have a skill set you’d like to share or something you’d like to learn while serving with a wonderful group of women? Perhaps you’d like to nominate someone else for consideration? We welcome your thoughts and suggestions! Our job is to slate someone for the roles of President, VP, Treasurer and Secretary. Committee Chairs do not need to be voted on at the AGM but we are happy to accept nominations for those important roles as well.

Nominations close on Friday January 22, 2016. Nominations can be received by telephone or email. If you are nominating someone else, please include a brief note about what position you are nominating her for and why you feel she is a good candidate. If you’d like to put your own name forward for consideration, please fill in the Leadership Profile 2016 and submit it by the same deadline.

The slate will be announced and voted on at the AGM on February 9th.

We look forward to being in touch.
