Election 2018

APPI Council Call for Nominations

The term of office for three members of the Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI) Council will conclude at the next Annual General Meeting (AGM) and nominees are required to fill these Councillor positions.  All three of the positions are for a two-year term commencing April 27, 2018.

In addition, nominees are required for the position of President Elect which consists of a four-year term commencing April 27, 2018, and includes one year as President Elect, two years as President and one year as Past President.

The APPI Nominating Committee is tasked with the duty of presenting the membership with a full slate of nominees for vacant positions on Council and at this time the Committee is actively recruiting potential volunteers.  If you are interested in running for a position on APPI Council, or if you would like additional information about serving on APPI Council, please contact the APPI office.

Regulated members, either Registered Professional Planners (RPP) or Candidate members, may nominate themselves or be nominated by others to serve on Council. Any number of Candidate members may be nominated for Councillor but no more than two Candidate members may serve at one time.  All nominees for Council or President Elect that are not nominated by the APPI Nominating Committee must submit a completed Nomination Form, signed by two regulated members, neither of whom may be the individual nominated, before the call for nominations closes.  APPI will contact nominees to obtain a Nominee Platform, on or before Friday March 9, 2018. 

All nominations must be filed with the Nomination Committee via the APPI office on or before Tuesday February 27, 2018.

Nominations may be submitted by email to [email protected], Attention APPI Nominating Committee.

If the number of nominees exceeds the number of vacant positions, ballots with voting instructions and nominees’ platform sheets will be mailed in advance of the AGM to all APPI members eligible to vote.  This year's AGM is Friday April 27, 2018, in Edmonton.  Anyone considering serving on APPI Council should be aware that the 2018 APPI Council Strategic Retreat is scheduled for the weekend of May 25-27, 2018, at Pigeon Lake, Alberta, and there is an expectation that all members of Council attend this important Institute visioning exercise. 

Thank you for your attention and participation in the governance of our professional Institute.
