Nominations to the AFHTO Board of Directors are open until July 14

Dear fellow AFHTO members:

Are you interested in serving on the AFHTO board of directors? The Governance Committee of AFHTO’s board invites anyone who works within an AFHTO member organization to apply. Please share this call for nominations with all who work in your team.

FIVE people 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.

In reviewing the composition of nine continuing board members, priority for the five directors to be elected will be given to candidates who are:

  • Interprofessional health providers or physicians
  • From AFHTO members located in NE Ontario and the Toronto area
  • From community-governed FHTs and NPLCs

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 12.
  • Nominees who are not recommended for the slate will have until September 22 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:
