2018 Election: Call for Nominations

CAIMS*SCMAI will be holding an election next winter (March 2018) for:

– Two Director positions on the CAIMS Board of Directors
– Communications Officer

The two Director positions will fill the positions to be vacated by Troy Day
and Lilia Krivodonova. The term of Troy Day will come to an end in 2018. The
term of Lilia Krivodonova is supposed to end in 2019. However, CAIMS is
implementing the synchronization of terms so that two Directors are elected
each year. Lilia has kindly agreed to have an early resignation. The two
Director positions will be for a three-year term.

The Communications Officer position will be vacated by Luciano Buono. The term
of Luciano Buono will come to an end in 2019. However, similar to the
synchronization of terms for Directors, the plan is to have one of the three
Executive Officers elected each year, which leads to the early resignation of
either the Treasurer or Communications Officer. Luciano Buono has kindly agreed
to step down next year. The Communications Officer position will be for a
three-year term.

All members of CAIMS*SCMAI are invited to put forward names of candidates
for these offices. Nominations should reach the CAIMS Secretary, Justin Wan
<secretary@caims.ca> by January 31, 2018.
