APEGA Council Election 2020

Each year, an APEGA Council election is held. Voting is conducted online in the Member Self-Service Centre (MSSC) over 30 days in early spring so that all members have an equal opportunity to take part and have their voices heard.

Council Nominations

To run for Council, you must be a member in good standing with an eligible membership type and able to commit to the duties of a Councillor and a three-year term. APEGA publishes the top-ranked Council needs in the summer issue of The PEG each year.

If you want to run for Council, you must complete the nomination form in the Member Self-Service Centre during the nomination period, which will run in fall 2020. Exact dates will be announced in the summer.
