Changes to the relevant Regulation have been approved, are posted to the PIPSC website in the ‘By-Laws and Regulations’ document and are embedded here for your reference:
R22.1.3 Biographical Sketches Each candidate for office may submit one (1) written biographical sketch, in either official language or one (1) video biographical sketch in either official language or one (1) bilingual video biographical sketch. A written biographical sketch submitted in English will be of no more than four hundred (400) words whereas a written biographical sketch submitted in French would be of no more than four hundred and fifty (450) words (as determined by the software in use by the Institute at the time). A video biographical sketch will be no more than two (2) minutes in duration. Biographical sketches are to be received at the National Office not later than the date and time fixed for the receipt of nominations. The position sought, name and membership status of the candidate shall precede the written biographical sketch but shall not be included in the word count. Each video biographical sketch shall begin with the name, position sought and membership status of the candidate. All biographical sketches shall adhere to the administrative procedures provided by the Elections Committee.
