APGO Council Elections Set to Open

Have you thought about volunteering for the APGO and contributing to how the Association is run?  Well this is your opportunity to run for APGO Council.  The following four positions will become available starting at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in June 2014:


·         Vice President – at least one year on APGO council is required

·         Southeast Region Councillor – you must reside in the Southeast Region

·         Northwest Region Councillor – you must reside in the Northwest Region

·         Councillor at Large – you must reside in Ontario


The term for councillors is 3 years. The election is open to practising, temporary and limited APGO members that reside in Ontario. Nominees are required to submit the following information to APGO’s CEO, Gord White:


·         a consent that they are willing to sit on Council if elected;

·         a curriculum vitae; and,

·         a nomination form seconded by ten (10) practising, temporary or limited members.


Nominations open on January 28, 2014 and close on February 27, 2014.  The election itself will run between April 30 and May 28, 2014. The results of the elections will be presented at the APGO AGM.


Running and serving on council is a definite commitment but one that can be very rewarding and enjoyable.  Talk to your P.Geo. colleagues. Find out what they would like to see from their councillors.  Talk to existing councillors to gain insight on what to expect while serving.  This is your chance to get involved and make a difference.


If you have any questions, please get in touch with Gord White (416) 203-2746 x22, GWhite@apgo.net  or the Nomination Chair, Ian Macdonald (519) 742-6685 x212, imac@wesa.ca.
