Call for Nominations” for the HKVCA National Board of Directors

The Election Committee is formally “Calling for Nominations” for the National Board of Directors. We urge all members to consider whom you feel would contribute their time, energy and skills, to ensuring the spirit, values and success of HKVCA carries forward. The Nomination Form is attached to this Spring Newsletter.


Nominations and Elections Process:


Please review the following before submitting your nominations to the Election Committee:

  1. This Elections Committee is seeking nominees for a maximum of twelve (12) Directors.

  2. The term of office for all Directors is now one (1) year. (There is no longer a limit to the number of sequential terms a person may serve.)

  6. All Nomination Forms must have a postmark or email date, on or before April 30, 2017.

  7. The Elections Committee will validate the Nominees by contacting them to ensure their willingness to serve if elected. A short biography will be requested at that time. Deadline for receipt of biographies is May 15, 2017 for the nominee to be included on the election ballot.

  8. If there are more than 12 valid nominees, the committee will conduct an election.

Regional Councils

In addition to the HKVCA National Board of Directors, there are 5 Regional Councils (BC, Prairie, Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic) chaired by the elected Director for that region. Positions of Secretary and Treasurer on the Regional Councils are filled by volunteers. If you, or someone you know is interested in volunteering for positions on the Regional Councils, please make recommendations directly to your Regional Director, as Regional Council Secretary/Treasurer positions are not a part of the National Board election.
