Nova Scotia Council - Call for Nominations!

04/29/2017 - 05/22/2017

Have you ever wanted to attend and vote at the annual meeting of Scouts Canada. This may be your opportunity. Each year voting members are elected to represent the Nova Scotia Council at the Scouts Canada Annual General Meeting. They represent Council and vote on a series of governance resolutions, including the election of the Board of Governors. They also represent the Council at Special Meetings, if one is called. Three Council Voting Members are elected for one year terms. One of the three positions is reserved for youth, however all three positions may, as a result of the electoral process,  be youth. By-law No. 2 defines youth members as those who are under the age of 27 years on September 1, 2017. The 2017 Annual General Meeting will be held on November 18, 2017 in Toronto. Councils may ask their Voting Members to attend by webcast, video conference, or teleconference.

To be eligibility, a candidate must be a registered Ordinary Member in the Council they represent; be nominated by five Ordinary Members registered in the same Council; and attained the age of 14 years in this calendar year. Nominations and election follow strict timelines. Nominations must be submitted to the Chief Elections Officer via e-mail (elections@scouts.ca ) no later than 5:00 PM EST, May 22, 2017. Voting begins June 1 and ends at 5:00 PM AST. Nomination forms and details on Candidate Eligibility, Nomination and election may be found at http://www.scouts.ca/ca/elections.

The NS Council Deputy Elections Officer is Jim McCorry (jmccorry@eastlink.ca; 902 543-3904) who would be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
