Time to vote in the FA elections
Cynthia Eaton


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 officers, delegates and EC reps whose terms are expiring (names are in parenthesis).

Please note 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."
