2018 Apra Canada Board Elections

The nomination process for the 2018 Apra Canada Board Election process is currently underway with a deadline of October 31st at 5PM EST.

If you are a current Apra Canada member and did not receive the e-mail with the nomination package, please contact Sarah Anderson, Board Secretary.

Why should you join the Apra Canada board?

It’s a chance to get more involved with Apra Canada and to work with and learn from your colleagues across the country. You will also gain professional development experience serving on the board of a non-profit association. Plus, you’ll have fun! Check out these job descriptions to learn more.

Each Board candidate must display a willingness to be an active participant of a working board for a two-year term beginning in November 2018 and ending in November 2020 and must: 

  1. Be an Apra Canada member in good standing
  2. Have been an Apra Canada member in good standing for the six (6) month period preceding the nomination
  3. Have at least six (6) months of experience in advancement research

Apra Canada directors are elected generally to the board, and roles are determined after new directors have been elected, based on vacancies. Although we will try to match directors with areas of interest, we cannot guarantee that new directors will be matched with their top choice in their first year on the board.

Please note that as Apra Canada is a registered Society in the Province of British Columbia, the Board must have a representative from BC. It has always been the Board’s goal to be geographically diverse, thus we will again be seeking greater representation across geographic areas and industry sectors in Canada and we will be seeking at least one board member from British Columbia.

All nominations received by the deadline will be reviewed to determine the slate of candidates that will be presented to the membership for a vote in early November 2018. 

Your nominations make a difference and ensure the continual development of Apra Canada as a meaningful organization for researchers.

It also offers a wealth of information for those from the private sector who realize the unique skill sets required to successfully conduct research in Canada.

In this book, 30 skilled contributors share their front-line experiences in the field of prospect research. Through their words and knowledge they reveal why Canadian researchers are not only specialists in their field, but also passionate about ethics and standards and continually improving a profession that they love.
