What’s next in the 2019 Council Election?

The Society has a two-phase Council election process. The second phase is the At-Large Election which elects both practising and non-practising members to fill in existing gaps on Council as the Society seeks a diversity of representation.

Nominations for the At-Large Election will be open from March 19 to April 1, 2019. All members in good standing are eligible to be nominated as the Society seeks to elect three At-Large members to Council. Voting is conducted online and is open to all members from April 15 to April 22, 2019
