CMTBC’s upcoming 2021 Board election will open on January 31, 2021. All ballots must be cast by February 28, 2021.
Nominations are now open for three Board positions, each to be elected for a two-year term beginning April 1, 2021.
As in 2020, the 2021 Board election will be conducted online by Simply Voting Inc., a provider of hosted online elections for regulators, associations, and other non-profit organizations. Individual ballots are 100% confidential, and CMTBC receives voting results in final tabulated and aggregated form only.
Board members are the directors of the College, providing policy governance and oversight in support of the College’s public protection mandate. Before consenting to nomination as a candidate, registrants should read the Board Roles & Responsibilities.
Eligible RMTs will receive an email on January 31, 2021 from Simply Voting with voting instructions and a link to the voting website. Ballots must be cast by February 28, 2021.
Pursuant to section 4(1) of the CMTBC Bylaws, for the 2021 Board election any Practicing Registrant in Good Standing may nominate for office up to three Practising Registrants in Good Standing by delivering nominations to the Registrar, together with the consent from the persons nominated.
CMTBC has prepared a Nomination and Consent form (PDF) that must be filled out, signed by the nominee, and received by the Registrar no later than 5:00 pm on January 4, 2021. The completed form can be mailed to CMTBC’s office, or e-mailed (as a PDF only – no JPEGs please) to Eric.Wredenhagen@cmtbc.ca.
PLEASE NOTE: If the Nominee is unable to fill out the form (after the Nominator’s sections have been filled out) and attach a signature electronically, then as a COVID-19 response measure, CMTBC will accept the Nominee’s dated Consent and Declaration – in the exact wording that appears on page 3 of the Nomination and Consent form – (and the Nominee’s photograph) by email sent directly to Eric.Wredenhagen@cmtbc.ca, together with the Nomination form attached and filled out by the Nominator.
Results will be announced in early March of 2021.
Deadline for Board nominations: January 4, 2021, 5:00 pm
