Call for Nominations in the 2021 Canadian Freelance Guild Board of Directors Election

Nominations are now open for all positions on the Canadian Freelance Guild (CFG) Board of Directors.

We will be electing for the positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and two Directors, one of whom will have responsibilities in Membership Management and Development. Terms will be staggered so that no board will be constituted of entirely new directors.

For this first election the President and Treasurer positions will each be 3-year terms. The Vice-President, Secretary, and the two Directors will be 2-year terms. All terms following the first terms will be three years.

Candidates must be nominated and seconded by CFG members in good standing. Members can find the nomination form in the Digital Deli section of the CFG website. Authorized nominees will have a chance to place a 500-word biography, photo and statement on the CFG website.

Nominations will close at 6pm Eastern Time, Thursday, February 25th, 2021. Candidates will have a chance to ‘meet and greet’ with members during the CFG Monthly Mixer at 4pm ET on Friday, February 26th.

Electronic Voting will take place on March 12th, 13th, and 14th, 2021. Details to follow. Results will be announced via an all-members email on Monday, March 15th.

If you’re a member, you can find the CFG’s election policy in the Digital Deli section of the CFG website. Questions about the election can be sent to CFG Organizer Don Genova in order to be forwarded to the Election Team for consideration.
