Call for Board Delegate nominations in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia

Feb 13, 2024

If you are interested in making a difference for your profession nationally and engaging with a team that is dynamic, courageous and focused on excellence, consider serving on the CCA Board of Directors. The CCA Board of Directors welcomes interest from members in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia who wish to serve on the Board and provide leadership and insight on national issues impacting the chiropractic profession.

The deadline for nominations is Thursday, February 29, 2024 at 11:59 pm (based on the time zone of your province).

This nomination and election process is being undertaken by the CCA directly since the amendments to the CCA bylaws were ratified by the regular members on April 17, 2021.

Once all eligible nominees have participated in a screening process conducted by the Nomination Subcommittee, an election to determine the board delegate for your province will commence. The successful candidate will represent the members in their province at the CCA table and will be further elected to the CCA Board of Directors to represent the CCA and the profession on a national level.

 

The first in person meeting with the CCA Board for the successful candidate will be Friday June 7 – Sunday June 9, 2024 in Toronto. 

 


Important eligibility considerations are as follows:

 

  • You must be a member in good standing of your provincial and national association.
  • You must be a member in good standing with CCPA.
  • You must be a member in good standing with your provincial regulator.
  • You must be a licensed chiropractor and reside in the province you are being nominated for.
  • You are not a board member, chair or president of a provincial chiropractic association, a chiropractic professional association or a chiropractic regulatory agency.
  • You are not a board member or employee of any other national chiropractic association operating in Canada or an international chiropractic association operating in Canada unless the CCA is a member of said international chiropractic association (WFC).

 

Ask someone to nominate you:

A nominator must be a member in good standing with the CCA, CCPA and their respective provincial association and be licensed in the same province as the candidate. Provincial associations recognized by the CCA in Schedule 1 of the CCA Bylaws and existing CCA board delegates from their respective province can also nominate a candidate.

 

Commitment and Board Director Requirements:

Please note that all Board business is conducted in English. The CCA Board is composed of 14 chiropractors who meet four times a year in person and each meeting is held over  weekend (Friday – Sunday).

Board Meeting Schedule:

  • Last weekend of February (Toronto) – 3 days
  • First weekend of June (Toronto) – 3 days
  • Second week of September (Location TBD – Thursday to Sunday) – 4 days
  • Last weekend of November (Toronto meeting) – 3 days

 

Board members must also be an ambassador of the CCA and its associated provincial association. Therefore, they should plan to register and attend the National Convention and Tradeshow (NCT) and Awards Gala that takes place every two years in the spring (travels across Canada) and plan to attend their respective provincial association’s Annual General Meetings. The CCA covers their respective flights and hotels for NCT but board members cover the costs for the registration and gala ticket.

 

Outside of Board meetings, email is the primary way the CCA connects with its board. Board members should be able to respond to emails within 48 hours and volunteer to be a part of one of the two board committees when the need arises. You can expect to engage in CCA Board business on average for 3-5 hours per month beyond board meetings. Board members are required to come prepared to all meetings and board packages are made available 7-10 days in advance of meetings. The board is entirely focused on strategy and oversight and meetings are dynamic and engaging with opportunities for input and discussion. Ongoing professional development is provided for the board.

 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:

The CCA is committed to creating an inclusive and equitable environment where all those participating in the organization are valued for their differences.  We encourage and welcome applications from all qualified individuals, including applicants from all cultures and backgrounds, racialized communities, indigenous communities, diverse sexual and gender identities, various religious backgrounds, women and those with disabilities. We are committed to a selection process and work environment that is inclusive and barrier-free. We also encourage applicants to self-identify if they wish to do so.
