Call for Nominations for COHNA-ACIIST Vice President

Re:                   Call for Nominations
Position:         Vice President

The COHNA-ACIIST Vice President position comes open in January 2025 and we are seeking nominations for this position.

The Vice-President position is a two-year term after which they shall be appointed to the position of President for a two-year term. Following the term as President, they shall be appointed to the position of Past President for a two-year term.

To be eligible for an Officer position, nominees are elected from the provincial membership. Previous Board experience is not required but is considered an asset. The eligibility criteria in the 2019 Bylaws states:

4.02 QUALIFICATIONS OF BOARD DIRECTORS:

Directors shall:

  • be an individual who is not less than eighteen years of age;
  • be a Member of their Provincial or Territorial Association, group, or organization for a minimum of two (2) years as a member in good standing;
  • not be an employee or representative of a company whose primary business would directly profit from being on the Board;
  • not be a contractor of the Association; and
  • not be a person who has been found by a court in Canada or elsewhere to be mentally incompetent, who has the status of a bankrupt, or who is an “ineligible individual” as defined in the Income Tax Act.4.03

Nominations will be accepted until June 14, 2024, with the election taking place on that day at our Annual General Meeting. Thank-you for the continued commitment and time you give to COHNA-ACIIST and our profession.
