NFA 2014 in Ottawa
The NFA 2014 Conference will be held on Ottawa, September 12-14, 2014.
The First Annual General Meeting of the NFA will take place Saturday September 28, 2013 at the Luncheon of the meeting in Québec City.
There will be two Agenda items:
1. Approval of the Bylaws
These Bylaws have been approved by the Board of Directors and must also be approved by the Members of the Association. We request that members review them in advance and be prepared to vote on them at the AGM. If you have any queries, comments or requests for amendments, please contact the Secretary-Treasurer, Gordon Sick, at email@example.com
2. Election of the Board of Directors for 2013-14
Our Bylaws provide for the election of a Vice-President, a Secretary-Treasurer and Members at Large. Nominations for these positions will be made by the Board, as follows:
Vice-President: Gordon Sick (University of Calgary). The Vice-President normally serves as the Program Chair.
Secretary-Treasurer: Ranjini Jha (University of Waterloo)
Director at Large: Stéphane Chretien (Université Laval). The Bylaws specify that the President is normally the Vice-President from the previous year, and, failing that, the President can be appointed by the Board. The current Board anticipates that the new Board will appoint Stéphane to this position, if he is elected as a Director at Large. The current NFA Vice President and Program Chair, Issouf Soumaré has indicated that he does not intend to be on the Board in the upcoming year. We appreciate his work on the Inaugural Board.
Past President: Brian Smith (Wilfrid Laurier University). This is a normal progression from President in the current year, so it is not an elected office.
Director at Large (2-year term): Mark Kamstra (York University)
Directors at Large (1-year terms): Lisa Kramer (University of Toronto), Vikas Mehrotra (University of Alberta) and Ron Giammarino (University of British Columbia)
Our Articles of Incorporation specify that we must have 4 to 8 Board Members. With all of these elections, we would have 8 Board Members, and Ranjini Jha and Stéphane Chretien would be new members.
NFA Members may also nominate Members for these positions at least 30 days before the Annual General Meeting. Please use this form for the nomination, as it provides for information that we can post on the website to support the nominee. It also requires the signatures of 5 nominating members. The form can be scanned and emailed to the Secretary-Treasurer, Gordon Sick, at firstname.lastname@example.org
