Planned System Maintenance

Prepared and submitted by C. Cheung, Chair of the 2017 Elections Committee

Process:

Multiple calls for nominees in the form of email messages and web postings were communicated (in both official languages) to the NRC RO-RCO membership starting November 9, 2017, approximately 4 weeks prior to the December 8, 2017 RO/RCO AGM. In addition, the call for candidates including instructions and link to the nomination form was posted on the PIPSC website on the RO/RCO Group site as an alternative means to e-mail.

Report:

A total of three (3) completed nomination forms were received by Brigitte Jolin of PIPSC by the submission deadline, December 7, 2017 @ 3pm. Each form was independently validated in accordance with our current bylaws. Therefore, these three candidates stood for election.

Results:

As six vacancies on the RO/RCO Executive Committee were available and three eligible candidates, it was not necessary to hold a ballot-based election and the three candidates were acclaimed to the Executive Committee.  These 3 candidates acclaimed to serve a 2-year term (listed in no particular order) are as follows:

Devenand Pinto (HHT, Halifax)

Mary Zborowski (retired member, Ottawa)

Carsen Banister (CONST, Ottawa)

 

Following the AGM, the RO/RCO Executive Committee filled the 3 remaining vacancies on the Committee, as permitted by our bylaws, by appointment until the next Election at AGM 2018.  These 3 vacancies will be filled by:

Suwas Nikumb (AST, London)

Craig Bihun (HHT, Ottawa)

Feng Ni (HHT, Montreal)

 

Executive Committee officer positions were also decided at the RO/RCO Executive Committee meeting following the AGM.  The composition of the RO/RCO Group Executive for 2018 will be as follows:
