Nomination Requirements

Any CPHA member in good standing shall be eligible to be nominated for the office of Director without regard to geographic location. Nominations for Director will be in writing by e-mail or by fax. The nominee will indicate his/her consent to be nominated and be supported by two (2) persons (nominators) who are current CPHA members.

Nomination papers must be received by the office of the Executive Director, addressed to the Nominating Committee, on or before 17:00 ET 6 September 2018.

The nomination form must be accompanied by:

  • A statement of eligibility (maximum 500 words) from the nominee indicating how his/her experience fits with the skills and strategic areas being sought by the Nominating Committee; and
  • The contact information of the two (2) nominators.

In addition to the above, candidates have the option to include any or all of the following at their discretion:

  • Photo (head and shoulders)
  • Link (one) to an online profile (e.g., LinkedIn)
  • Link to a video message

The above additional information will be made available via CPHA’s website in the language in which it is provided (i.e., CPHA will not translate any of this material).

All supplied materials will be published to CPHA members.

If you require assistance identifying potential nominators, log into the membership portal, select Member Directory, and enter search criteria that will help you find CPHA members who you may know and can approach to support your nomination.

If you have any questions about the nominations or elections process, please send an e-mail to nominations@cpha.ca.

The election takes place in October-November 2018.
