The NLPSPA currently has two vacancies on the Board of Directors that are in need of being filled, from current date until the next Annual General Meeting in October 2021. According to our Constitution, Article 7.8:
Vacancies on the Board of Directors that occur between Annual General Meetings may be filled at the discretion of the Board from the general voting membership. Such newly appointed Director(s) shall be entitled to fulfill only the balance remaining of the year and shall be eligible for re-election at the next Annual General Meeting. Time served by the newly appointed Director to the date of the Annual General Meeting shall not count in calculating any subsequent three-year term of election of the said Director.
At this time, the Board is in transition from a “Working Board” to a “Governance/Policy Board” and is in need of additional committed members. You must be a Voting member, in good standing, of NLPSPA. This means you must be in receipt of a public service pension, be a surviving spouse of such a member, or be in receipt of a pension from the Government Money Purchase Plan and you must be a member of NLPSPA. If you are an Affiliate, Associate, Honorary, or Reciprocal Member you are not eligible for this opportunity.
The candidates must possess high ethical standards, effective communication, leadership and interpersonal skills, with an ability to positively influence discussion and review meeting materials. Adequate internet access, computer capability, a comfort level using virtual meeting platforms, possessing integrity and honesty, and having some time to contribute would also be of great benefit. If you think you meet most of these requirements, this opportunity might be a just the right fit for you.
If you are interested in joining the NLPSPA Board for the next 10 months, please complete the attached, brief form and return it to Cheryl at the NLPSPA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 4, 2020. If you would like to speak to the President on this, please advise Cheryl and she will set up the contact for you.
