 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

At this year’s Annual General Meeting in August, twelve board members’ terms are ending (out of a total of eighteen Board Directors).  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 twelve Directors whose terms are ending in July, seven have opted to run for re-election, and five are stepping down.

  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 and those working in Injury Prevention or Enforcement.

Nomination forms can be found at CARSP BOD Nomination Form 2021.  Complete the nomination form and submit the signed form to Shabnem Afzal (Shabnem.Afzal@surrey.ca) by April 27th, 2021.

 Elections

As permitted by the CARSP Bylaws, an e-mail ballot will be prepared and sent to CARSP members on May 4, 2021 asking members to elect Board Directors. Members will be asked to indicate which twelve nominees they would like to see elected to the Board. The election period will end May 25, 2021. The twelve nominees who receive the most votes will fill the current Board Director positions.

 Announcement of Election Outcome

Returning and newly elected Board Directors will be notified of election results by May 27th.  Election results will be announced to the general CARSP membership by email after all new Board Directors have accepted their positions.
