2021 Director Nomination and Election Process
At the 2021 Annual General Meeting, the CASDA Board of Directors will have open space for up to 6 new Directors (3 Organization and 3 Ally).
Nominations for these open Director positions will be accepted from CASDA members. Organization Members are organizations focused on autism and incorporated as a charity and/or not for profit organization, pursuant to applicable Federal and/or Provincial laws. Ally members are organizations, professionals and community members (e.g. individuals with lived experience) that do not fit the definition of Organization Members. Please refer to CASDA’s Member Directory (https://www.casda.ca/our-members-old/) for a list of current members.
The Governance Committee assesses and makes recommendations regarding nominees for election and re-election by the Members of the Corporation. The process for 2021 will be as follows:
- Nominations for an appointment on the Board of Directors shall be made by CASDA members and emailed to the Board of Directors’ Chair.
- The Governance Committee may also recruit nominations based on gaps identified in the Board of Directors Skills Matrix.
Please ensure that your membership is up to date prior to submitting a nomination.
Nominations must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than midnight Pacific Time on January 19, 2021. Please include the following information:
- Name and status of membership (Organization/Ally)
- Letter describing your understanding of CASDA’s mission and vision, interest in the position and what strengths you bring to the Board of Directors.
