Election

The application period for the CBA Alberta Board and Secretary candidates run from April 1, 2021 to April 26, 2021. Nomination forms for all open positions will be available shortly.

CBA Alberta Branch Secretary

The Secretary is the first step on the five-rung Executive Committee ladder, which progresses in annual succession from Secretary to Treasurer to Vice President to President to Past President.  The Secretary is elected by the eligible voters of CBA Alberta to a five-year term of service on the Executive Committee, and eligibility for the Secretary position alternates between North and South. Service on the Executive committee is for a five year term and those considering a run for Secretary should be prepared to be available and to commit for the full five years.

This year, the candidates for CBA Alberta Secretary must reside in north Alberta (that part of Alberta north of the south boundary of township 35. For ease of reference, township 35 is located south of the City of Red Deer). In addition to meeting the North or South requirement in alternate years, the Secretary must be a member in good standing of the CBA, not be bankrupt, and resident of Alberta. Former members of the Branch Board or the CBA National Board must wait a year before running as Secretary. Members cannot run for both the office of Secretary and the Board at the same time.
