2009 Election Calendar

Preparations for the election of the fifth Council to be held in early 2009 are already underway. In his column (page 10), Registrar Brian McGowan provides some insight into the issues that the Election Committee must address before election preparations begin.

The December issue of Professionally Speaking will feature the election call and information on how to nominate someone or stand for election yourself. You will get advance information at every step if you sign up for our electronic newsletter through the Members’ Area of the College web site.

In the meantime, here’s a rundown on how the election will unfold until the names of 23 new councillors are announced on April 16, 2009.
