Board Nominations

2019 Board of Directors Nominees

As a CFPC member, you are invited to vote in the 2019 election of your Board Directors. This year you will vote for one new Director-at-Large from among four candidates. You will also be asked to confirm the President-Elect nominee, the Secretary-Treasurer nominee, and an additional term for two current Directors-at-Large. Electronic voting for 2019 opens October 9th and closes October 23rd.

Your Board of Directors, Nominating Committee, and Governance Advisory Committee work hard on your behalf to ensure the CFPC is well governed. They take seriously the responsibility of monitoring how the Board is functioning, complying with regulations, and listening to CFPC members. They use a competency matrix and recognize the importance of balancing continuity and renewal.

Twenty-two applicants responded to the 2019 call for one Director-at-Large vacancy. The priority recruitment attributes highlighted in the call are outlined below. After a thorough review of the applications and interviews of the applicants, the Nominating Committee unanimously recommended and the Board unanimously approved the individuals who best meet the competency matrix and priority attributes and who would make a positive contribution to the governance of the CFPC.

Based on feedback from members, the Board approved bylaw amendments—effective December 18, 2018, and to be ratified by members at the October 31, 2019, Annual Meeting of Members—to permit the opportunity to propose one or more nominee(s) per vacancy. Based on members’ feedback, the election continues to be held electronically so everyone can participate. Also, the election process continues to permit members to review the nominations and, if dissatisfied, nominate someone else within the specified timeline.

In addition to the published information, the four new candidates will each have a two-minute self-introduction video made available. Three video conferences are scheduled for October to allow you to pose questions to all eight candidates and nominees. Electronic voting is open from October 9th to October 23rd, and the results and your 2019–2020 Board of Directors will be announced in Vancouver at the Annual Meeting of Members October 31, 2019, as part of FMF week.
