Interested in serving on the AFHTO Board of Directors? Apply by July 5, 2016

Dear AFHTO members:

Primary care is evolving in our province; government’s Patients First proposal is pointing to significant change. It is a VERY interesting time to be serving on the AFHTO board of directors!

To maintain balanced representation on the board, priority consideration will be given to candidates who are:

  • Physicians (Executive Directors and Interprofessional Health Providers are also welcome to apply)
  • From AFHTO members located in the eastern and northern regions of Ontario

Four positions are to be elected for a 3-year term on the 14-member AFHTO board. The AFHTO by-laws call for balanced representation on the board to include the various forms of governance, the regions of the province, and the mix of the professions working within FHTs, NPLCs and other interprofessional models of primary care.

The Governance Committee of AFHTO’s board invites anyone who works within an AFHTO member organization to apply by July 5th. Please share this call for nominations with all who work in your team.

To apply:

The Governance Committee of the AFHTO board will review all applications to assist the AFHTO board to determine the slate of candidates to recommend to the AFHTO membership for election at the AFHTO annual general meeting.

  • Nominees will be informed of their status by September 21.
  • Nominees who are not recommended for the slate will have until September 26 to determine whether they wish to proceed with having their name go forward on the election ballot.
  • The election will take place at the Annual General Meeting in conjunction with the AFHTO annual conference.  This year it will be held:

Monday, October 17, 2016
