Call for Nominations to the Steering Committee

If you would like to put forward your organization as a nominee for the Steering Committee, please do so via email to [email protected] no later than January 15th.

• The AHC Steering Committee is to be comprised of no less than 8 and no more than 12 member organizations.
• The AHC Secretariat has one reserved seat on the Steering Committee. As of January 1, 2019, this role is moving to CAPAHC. CAPAHC is represented by Laurence Mersilian.
• Steering Committee member organizations are elected for 2-year terms. The Gilbert Centre (represented by Colin Green), Positive Living Fraser Valley (represented by Kari Hackett) and AIDS Saskatoon (represented by Jason Mercredi) all have 1 year remaining on their 2-year term as they were newly elected in 2018.
• The other 8 seats on the Steering Committee are currently filled by member organizations who have been there for more than 2 years, so they are able to put their organization forward for re-election, along with any other member organizations who would like to be considered for election by the membership.
• If there are 8 or fewer nominees for the 8 remaining seats, the membership will vote to accept the proposed Steering Committee slate at the AGM.
• Should there be more than 8 nominees, an online vote will be required ahead of the AGM, with the 2019 Steering Committee being announced at the AGM.
