CAPE President steps down, Scott Crawford Designated by NEC

On Monday, November 6, Camille Awada stepped down as CAPE President by submitting his resignation to the National Executive Committee (NEC).

CAPE’s Constitution states that for vacancies, article 21.1, the NEC designates a Vice-President to assume duties of the President for the balance of the term. At a special meeting today, the NEC designated Scott Crawford, Vice-President, EC, LoP and OPBO, as President.

Scott Crawford first joined the NEC in 2021 and in May 2023 was designated by the NEC to be the Vice-President for EC, LoP and OPBO. He officially begins as President today and will be in the position for the remainder of mandate, which ends December 31, 2023.

As a reminder, all the NEC positions are up for re-election and, as noted in an earlier unrelated announcement, the election will run from November 30 to December 13.

CAPE management and the President will ensure a smooth transition and CAPE’s work for its members will continue as planned.
