Nominating Committee

As part of the APEGA Council election, the Nominating Committee is responsible for ensuring APEGA voters are presented with a slate of candidates whose knowledge, skills, and attributes have been assessed through a transparent, formal, and structured process, and ideally who are broadly reflective of APEGA registrants.

The committee has between five and seven members:

  • three to five professional members or licensees of APEGA
  • one to three lay members from the general public

Committee members should demonstrate an acute understanding of APEGA’s role as a self-regulating body; have experience identifying, selecting, and evaluating nominees; and show a commitment to the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion.


  • Review and understand the competencies needed for Council as a whole
  • Conduct a gap analysis to determine priorities for candidate skills and experience
  • Oversee the process of receiving nominations from the membership at large
  • Ensure candidates running for Council are qualified
  • Assess nominees using a structured competency-based approach
  • Identify candidates to appear on the election ballot
