2019 BoD Elections and Committees

Joining a Committee or the CAA Board


Joining the Board of Directors (expressions of interest due by April 1, 2019)



Bylaws on CAA Board Composition

Election of directors to the CAA board is a routine component of annual general meetings based on the CAA bylaws. CAA bylaw 43 states the CAA BoD will consist of a minimum of 8 members:


a) at least five practicing Professional Members;

b) at least one Active Member; and,

c) two Public Representatives.


This minimum of 8 directors can be exceeded. In 2016, CAA members voted to increase the board to 9 positions – the additional position can be either a professional member or an active member.

2019 Elections

The director positions on the BoD up for election this year are as follows:


1) Regular Director – held by an incumbent (Walter Burns, Professional Member)

2) Regular Director – held by an incumbent (Lisa Porter, Professional Member)

3) Regular Director – held by an incumbent (Ryan Buhler, Professional Member)

4) Regular Director – Vacant (Mark Bender stepping down early)

5) Regular Director – Vacant (Steve LeClair stepping down early)

6) Public Representative - Vacant (John Martland Steps down after 6 years)

7) Public Representative (Kelvin Saldern appointed by board mid-term must stand for election at the next AGM)

Expressions of Interest are due by April 1, 2019.

This requirement ensures orderly elections and avoids candidates making last minute decisions at the AGM. To express your interest in joining the CAA as a director please email Joe Obad to receive the candidate application form. CAA members are not eligible for the Public Representative Positions.


Joining a CAA Committee

The Board is currently checking in with committees to see what vacancies need to be filled. Look at the CAA committees page to see a list of the committees. Contact Joe Obad with your interests and what you feel you can bring to the committee. Joe and the board will work to match interested members with the committees where possible.
