Elections

The Executive Committee

The International Council for Canadian Studies is governed by a Board of Directors and an elected three-member Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is composed of the President, the President-Elect or Past-President, and the Treasurer and is responsible for managing the affairs of the ICCS between the Annual General/Board of Directors meetings.
The President-Elect serves on the Executive Committee for one year before assuming the Presidency. The President is elected at an annual meeting of the directors to hold office for a term of two (2) years. The Past-President serves on the Executive Committee for one year following completion of his or her presidency. The Treasurer is elected biennially to the Executive Committee by the Board of Directors.

Procedures

The Board of Directors establishes a Nominating Committee four months prior to the annual meeting of the Board of Directors during which directors will elect a new President or the Treasurer.
The Nominating Committee will issue a call for applications to the Directors and will develop a list of candidates for the positions of president and Treasurer prior to the board meeting at which the election is to take place. The Nominating Committee will ensure that the list of candidates includes at least two candidates for the positions of President and Treasurer.
