Elections: This year we have three board positions coming open for the 2022 term:

For more information on the specifics of each role, please see the positions Policies and Bylaws

If you are not familiar with our chapter elections process, here is a refresher:

We accept nominations for open positions until one week prior to the AGM; this year that is September 28. This gives the nominating committee enough time to prepare the list of candidates. All nominations should be communicated to Barb Cross (Immediate Past President) at pastpresident@pminorthsask.com. Nominations should include a brief bio as well as a statement of your experience related to the position.

Candidate information will be published to the membership one week prior to the AGM.  At his/her discretion, the president will interview all candidates prior to the election.

The new board appointments take effect January 1, and new board members go through transition and training over the fall.
