Time for elections in the FA
Cynthia Eaton


  VOTE in FA elections

Every spring the FA holds elections for positions on the Executive Council in accordance with Section VII.B. of the FA Election Procedures.

As chair of the Elections Committee, I share below the timeline for this spring's elections as well as the names of EC reps whose terms are expiring (names are in parenthesis).

Adjunct PAs and specialists should note that in addition to the regularly expiring terms, we have two vacancies as shown below.

EC reps should be aware that Section VII.B. reads in part that the "The EC rep in each constituency shall be designated the elections chairperson of that constituency and shall conduct elections, unless he/she is running for office, in which case an acting elections chairperson shall be designated."
