NEADS Conference 2004 - Right On!

Board of Directors’ Election

At November’s national conference in Ottawa, Right On!, the Association’s regular members will elect a new Board of Directors to work with NEADS for the next two years. All persons interested in a position on the board must be regular members in good standing. Positions on the Board must be filled by “regular members” of NEADS (currently having student status or having graduated within two years of application).

The positions available for election are ten provincial representatives (e.g. British Columbia Rep., Ontario Rep., Nova Scotia Rep. etc.), one territorial representative and an ‘Open’ Representative. Candidates for the positions of provincial/territorial representatives must be students or recent graduates with disabilities residing in the area and/or attending a post-secondary institution in the geographic location they seek to represent.

If you would like to become a member of the NEADS Board, please complete and sign the “Nomination Form” as specified and, if possible, submit it to the office by October 9th, 2004. This will enable us to prepare the forms in both official languages and alternative formats in time for the conference elections. We ask that you include a profile/platform of 250 words or less with the completed nomination form.

Voting for a new Board of Directors will take place at the Delta Ottawa Hotel and Suites (361 Queen Street) on Sunday, November 14th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Confederation Room. Nomination forms for board positions will be received in the Confederation Room until 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 13th.

The election will be conducted by representatives from Elections Canada. All regular members are entitled to vote in the election. If you are unable to attend the election in person you can identify another member in good standing to act as a proxy and vote on your behalf.

Please contact the office with any questions regarding the Board of Directors election.
