Nominations Sought for CARSP Board Directors

The Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals (CARSP) is seeking directors for its Board. It is important to seek new directors to the Board on a regular basis to ensure fresh ideas are being considered in the management of CARSP

Number of Board Directors Sought

The CARSP Board can have a maximum of 20 directors. At present, only 17 of these positions are currently filled.  During this year’s election we would like to fill these 3 vacant positions.  Furthermore, at this year’s Annual General Meeting in June, 5 board members’ terms are ending.  Therefore, CARSP has 8 director positions to fill.

CARSP Board Directors have the option of completing two back to back three-year terms, however, they must also go through the election process.  Of the 5 Directors whose terms are ending in June, four have opted to run for re-election, and one is stepping down.


Members of CARSP are encouraged to nominate either themselves or another CARSP member. CARSP aims to serve all road safety professionals across the country so nominees should be currently active in one or more areas of road safety (e.g., research, policy/legislation, enforcement, education, engineering, injury prevention, public health, etc.).

In addition, we strive to have representation from all Canadian geographic areas.  At present, we are encouraging members from the Atlantic Provinces and the Prairie Provinces to apply, along with members of Provincial Governments and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs).  We are also looking for Board members in enforcement, crash reconstruction and vehicle manufacturing.

Nomination forms can be found at CARSP BOD Nomination Form 2018.  Complete the nomination form and submit the signed form to Jennifer Kroeker-Hall ( by March 23th, 2018.


As permitted by the CARSP Bylaws, an e-mail ballot will be prepared and sent to CARSP members March 28, 2018 asking members to elect Board directors. Members will be asked to indicate which 8 nominees they would like to see elected to the Board. The election period will end April 18, 2018. The 8 nominees who receive the most votes will fill the current board director positions.

Announcement of Election Outcome

Returning and newly elected board members will be notified of election results by April 20th.  Election results will be announced to the general CARSP membership by email after all new board directors have accepted their positions.
