Become an Ontario Equity Councillor
Equity Council is currently seeking candidacy submissions for a mid-term replacement to help represent the region of Ontario. Candidacy is open to fully paid-up regular and life members in good standing. (Membership status can be checked here.)
- Council is Equity's national board, and it governs the Association on behalf of the membership.
- Council provides the strategic leadership for the Association, setting standards for all aspects of everything that Equity does.
- In consultation with the membership, Council constantly seeks more effective support of member careers.
- Council monitors all aspects of Equity’s activities, to ensure that standards are met, and goals are achieved.
- Council meets in-person in Toronto three times per year, and by telephone and web conference call seven times per year.
If you are interested in helping Equity serve the membership better, and have some energy and time to put toward achieving that, then you are exactly the sort of person we are looking for.
Although Councillors are ordinarily elected to their positions for a three-year period, mid-term replacements take place on an appointment basis. All you need to do is declare your interest. A panel consisting of the other Ontario Councillors will review all applications, and make a recommendation to Council for formal appointment.
Got questions about being a Councillor? Of course you do, and we’re happy to answer them. A reply to firstname.lastname@example.org will get you connected up with one of our Ontario Councillors for a chat.
The application period will close on September 17, at midnight ET. Please take this early opportunity to ask for more information, or declare your interest in serving by clicking here.
Equity is dedicated to the election of a Council that is representative of the diverse membership of the Association. We invite and strongly encourage members from all demographics (particularly those who self-identify on the basis of ability, age, ancestry, belief, ethnicity, gender, health, race, or sexual orientation, or intersections of any of these) to declare their interest in serving on Council.
