July 17, 2018

Leaders 1

The following is a call for candidates to fill the position of Director representing Library of Parliament members on the National Executive Committee.

In the CAPE general election of 2017, there were no candidates for the position of LoP Director on the National Executive. The Executive called on LoP volunteers to fill the position for 2018. And  the LoP Director who is currently on the Executive was appointed in early 2018 under the authority of Paragraph 21.4 of CAPE’s Constitution. Paragraph 21.4 requires now that this position be filled by by-election for the two remaining years of the mandate.

The election period is in the fall and ends two weeks after the AGM which is scheduled this year for December 4. The mandate of the newly elected member will begin on January 1, 2019 and the elected member will remain on the NEC until shortly after the end of the next general election at CAPE, i.e. until December 31 2020. More information on the election process is available under CAPE By-Law 5.

If you are interested in participating at the national level in the work of the organization, or if you have a LoP colleague that you wish to nominate and who agrees to be nominated, you are invited to complete the form below and to send it to CAPE’s National Office  no later than 4 pm Ottawa Time on September 1, 2018.
