Call for Nominations for Election to CARSP Board of Directors

March 7, 2019   |   Categories: CARSP News, News

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 twenty directors. At present, only nineteen of these positions are currently filled.  During this year’s election we would like to fill this vacant position.  Furthermore, at this year’s Annual General Meeting in May, five board members’ terms are ending.  Therefore, CARSP has six 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 five Directors whose terms are ending in May, four have opted to run for re-election, and one is stepping down.

 

 Board Director Manual

More information on what is expected from a Board Director is found in the Board Director Manual, which you can download here:  Board-Manual-FINAL-may-23

 

 Nominations

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.  We are also looking for Board members in enforcement.

Nomination forms can be found at CARSP BOD Nomination Form 2019.  Complete the nomination form and submit the signed form to Alex Nolet (anolet@tnsgroup.ca) by March 29th, 2019.

 

 Elections

As permitted by the CARSP Bylaws, an e-mail ballot will be prepared and sent to CARSP members April 1, 2019 asking members to elect Board directors. Members will be asked to indicate which six nominees they would like to see elected to the Board. The election period will end April 17, 2019. The six 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 18th.  Election results will be announced to the general CARSP membership by email after all new Board Directors have accepted their positions.
