Nominations for election to the CPA Alberta Board are now open.
This year, there are four open board positions to be filled, including two positions in which incumbents have indicated they are running for re-election. For more details, you can access the CPA Alberta Board Nomination package on the CPA Alberta website at www.cpaalberta.ca/About-Us/Board-Nomination.
Nominations must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, June 28, 2019.
All Alberta CPAs who are members in good standing are eligible to stand for election to the CPA Alberta Board. However, the CPA Alberta Governance Committee has identified the following competency areas and demographic characteristics of candidates that would strengthen the expertise of the CPA Alberta Board and balance the profile of the board to reflect the membership at large:
- Be a resident of Northern Alberta outside of the Edmonton area
- Have the perspective of a professional accounting (public practice) practitioner from a small- to medium-sized firm
- Have extensive governance experience, possibly including an ICD.D. designation
- Possess government relations skills and experience
Voting for Board positions and other regulatory matters will take place from September 3 to September 24, 2019. Results will be announced at the CPA Alberta Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday, September 26, which will take place in Calgary at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Formal notice of the CPA Alberta AGM will be provided at a later date.
