Request for Recommendations for 2018 Executive and Committee Nominees
The Nominating Committee of CAFCN, consisting of Cindy Lazenby, Pat MacDonald and Angi Jones, is charged with the responsibility of ensuring continuity by nominating a slate of officers of the association for the voting body at the annual general meeting for committee positions open in 2018.
Benefits of serving on the Executive Committee or other committee positions of CAFCN is an excellent way to participate at the national level. This offers the opportunity to meet a wide range of CAFCN members, network with allied professional groups and work with other motivated and experience committee members.
The CAFCN Nominating Committee is requesting informal feedback from committee members and the membership as to possible candidates to be considered by the Nominating Committee. This is not an official nomination. It is merely a suggestion as to members who could be considered for nomination by the Nominating Committee, or a personal expression of interest by a member. The suggestion or expression of interest is not an automatic inclusion on the slate of candidates. The Nominating Committee will review all recommendations and also undertake its own investigation of suitable candidates for the 2018 positions. The final selection of candidates is at the discretion of the CAFCN Nominating Committee and approved by the Executive Committee. The Nominating Committee slate of candidates will be announced in April 25, 2018.
