Committees of the A/P Council

Elections Committee

The Elections Committee administers the annual A/P nomination and election process which occurs in March each year, with newly elected members being seated at the August Council meeting. The Elections Committee is comprised of an Elections Officer and two Council members. The Elections Officer cannot be a current member of the Council and the two Council members cannot stand for re-election during that cycle. Should a Council seat be vacated during the year, the Election Committee identifies the next highest vote-getter from the most recent election to fill the vacancy.
