This is a friendly reminder that the deadline to submit nominations for election to the CPA Alberta Board is 4:30 pm on Friday, August 4.
Ideal candidates would be engaged members who bring a broad range of relevant experience, reflect the diversity of the membership and possess a demonstrated ability to make a significant contribution at the Board level. It’s your chance to contribute your time and expertise to advance your profession!
The CPA Alberta Board consists of 12 members—nine CPAs and three public representatives. Being a member of the Board requires a time commitment of 10-15 days per year, depending on the specific responsibilities assigned to the Board Member. The Board usually meets four times per year. Meetings are regularly held in Edmonton and Calgary and may be held throughout the province. Board members are also encouraged to attend key CPA Alberta events. Board members are elected for a three-year term (maximum two terms).
While all Alberta CPAs who are members in good standing are eligible to stand for the CPA Alberta Board, the CPA Alberta Governance Committee has identified the following four competency areas where strengthening the expertise of the CPA Alberta Board would be beneficial:
- Government Relations
- Information Technology
Additionally, the Governance Committee has noted demographic gaps in the make-up of the CPA Alberta Board, with females and Alberta CPAs from Southern Alberta (including Calgary) being under-represented.
Voting for Board positions and other regulatory matters will take place from August 23 to September 20, 2017. Results will be announced at the CPA Alberta AGM on September 22, which will take place in Calgary at the Sheraton Eau Claire. Formal notice of the CPA Alberta AGM will be provided at a later date.
