2017 CHA Council and Nominating Committee Election
In order to prepare a ballot for the election of candidates to take office at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Canadian Historical Association, the Nominating Committee of the CHA wishes to draw your attention to the following procedure.
Nominations of candidates for positions on the Council and on the Nominating Committee will be received in writing, email or fax until December 31, 2016. Letters of nomination shall include the signatures of the nominator and a seconder, both of whom must be members of the Association in good standing at the time the nomination is submitted. The Nominating Committee will assume the responsibility of ensuring that each person nominated agrees to appear on the ballot. The names of all duly nominated candidates shall appear on the ballot prepared by the Nominating Committee and submitted to the membership. This ballot shall include not less than six candidates for the Council and four candidates for the Nominating Committee to fill the three positions on Council and the two positions on the Nominating Committee. If fewer candidates than required have been nominated by December 31, 2016, the Nominating Committee shall nominate additional candidates. The elections results will be announced at our annual meeting at Ryerson University.
Please note that members can also nominate a candidate for Vice-President. That candidate's (or candidates') name will appear on the ballot for the 2018 election.
