All members, 18 years of age or older, in good standing as of January 1, 2018 will be eligible to put their name forward for a position on the board of directors.

A member is elected to the Board of Directors when they put their name forward for nomination and receive sufficient votes on the ballot from the general membership in an election vote held during the AGM . In the case of a tie, a secondary vote may be held until a minimum of 6 positions on the Board of Directors are filled.
