Report on Nominations for the 2016 CCCJ Election
A call for nominations with an August 31, 2016 deadline was sent to every Member by e-mail on August 10, 2016. I am very pleased to report that we had an excellent response this year to our call for nominations of candidates to serve on our Board of Governors.
The following 7 candidates have been nominated for election to fill the position of Vice Chair and the 4 other available positions of Governor. Since Neil van Wouw was the only candidate nominated for Vice Chair, he will be elected by acclamation and the other 6 candidates will run for the 4 other available positions of Governor.
All candidates are members in good standing and were duly nominated pursuant to the CCCJ’s Constitution and By-laws. We encourage you to read through each candidate’s profile before voting. Copies will also be made available on the CCCJ website.
