Call for Nominations: National Executive Council, Committee Chairs

Would you like to help shape Editors Canada at the national level, develop new skills and broaden your professional network? The 2024 nominating committee of Editors Canada is looking for engaged, dedicated people to serve on the national executive council (NEC) or chair national committees.

You can find details on the following in the Nominations Fact Sheet:

  • eligibility (for members and student affiliates)
  • roles and responsibilities for each director position
  • mandates and responsibilities for each committee
  • expected time commitment
  • the overall nomination and election process

In accordance with our bylaw, we are providing official notice of the call for candidates to all members via this email.

National executive council

Under our bylaw, the NEC members serve staggered two-year terms. At the NEC’s first meeting following the annual general meeting, NEC members will appoint themselves into offices and portfolios:

  • President
  • Vice-president
  • Past president
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • Director of communications
  • Director of member recruitment and retention
  • Director of professional standards
  • Director of publications
  • Director of training and development
  • Director of volunteer relations
  • Regional director of branches and twigs

Note: Five members from the current national executive council will serve the second year of their two-year term in 2024–25. Four members have expressed an interest in returning to the NEC to start a new term. We are therefore seeking three candidates for the NEC.

Committee chairs and national positions

Most committee chairs serve a one- or two-year term; all committee chairs are appointed by the NEC. (Two people may also serve as co-chairs of committees; please indicate if you would prefer to co-chair a committee.) Here is a list of committees for which we are seeking chairs:

  • Member services committee

These are the national positions that we are seeking to fill:

  • Francophone adviser
  • Facebook group co-moderator
