Candidates Announced for 2022 APEGA Council

The nomination process for the 2022 Council election is complete and candidates are preparing their messages. That means it’s time for members to start thinking about who to vote for in the 2022 APEGA Council election.

Three candidates seek the president-elect position for the 2022-2023 term and 11 others hope to serve three-year terms on Council. You can vote for up to four candidates for Council and one for president-elect—the runner-up will become the vice-president.

Two of the candidates for president-elect are current councillors, so depending on the outcome of the vote, up to six Council seats will be filled.

You’ve already chosen the new president for 2022-2023—Lisa Doig, P.Eng., won the president-elect race last year, so she moves up to president automatically.
