Nominating Committee Recommendation

The Nominating Committee evaluates candidates' qualifications, experience, skills, and professional and governance expertise, then compares that information to gaps of expertise that will be created by those who have completed their term in office.

This approach balances the level of knowledge and expertise on Council that ultimately results in a stronger and more effective Council. APEGA has made available the characteristics of a great Councillor.

All candidates for this nomination and election cycle were informed that the Nominating Committee would be recommending candidates and that the list of candidates would be published with the recommendation identified. Ultimately, professional members who vote choose APEGA Council.
