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.
