It’s that time of year again and the CIA Elections Committee is already working hard on the 2011 Elections. This year elections are required for four Director positions (three-year terms), Secretary-Treasurer (two-year term) and President-elect (one-year term, three-year commitment). Any member who wishes to run for office as a Director, as Secretary-Treasurer or as President-elect, and who meets the nomination requirements set out in the CIA Elections Rules of Procedure, will have their name appear on the ballot.

The Elections Committee is also actively identifying and encouraging potential candidates to run. The committee encourages proportional representation by region and practice area on the Board and would like to bring to your attention a particular need for members with P&C expertise to serve as Directors to achieve proportional representation. We are particularly urging those members to participate in the election process this year.

The CIA’s future is in your hands and it is the responsibility of each of us to make our mark. This is your opportunity to serve and support your profession. Please consider standing for election and when the time comes, please vote.

If you are interested in nominating an individual or submitting your own name for this year’s ballot, please contact Lynn Blackburn at the Secretariat prior to April 8, 2011, for the necessary forms. Further information regarding the nomination requirements can be found in the Elections Committee’s approved Rules of Procedure.

This is your opportunity to serve and support your profession. For more information, contact Lynn Blackburn, director, member services and standards development, at (613) 236-8196 ext. 117 or lynn.blackburn@actuaries.ca or any of the Elections Committee:
