ABOUT THE ELECTION PROCESS

Once the voting period is over, our Nominations Committee (composed of Satya Ramen, Mary Lou Morgan, Paul Taylor and Diana Bronson) will propose a slate of candidates and present it to the Board. The Board will then recommend a slate to our members at our Annual General Meeting in Montreal on November 4th. The recommendation will be based on the result of the voting and an assessment of the needs of the organization (diversity, expertise, etc).

This online voting preference is one of the tools the Nominations committee uses to assess board candidates in relation to the criteria. The membership makes the final decision at the AGM in Montreal on November 4th.

At Food Secure Canada, we care deeply about democratic process and ensuring members have a strong voice in our governance. Thank you for taking the time to participate in this important vote.
