Subject: PIPSC 2018 Elections - List of Candidates

On August 11, 2018, the PIPSC Elections Committee reviewed the nominations received, including the biographical sketches, for the 2018 National Elections to the Executive Officer and Regional Director positions on the PIPSC Board of Directors.  We are now pleased to publish the official ‘List of Candidates’.

Please note that some changes are required to some biographical sketches.  Once the changes are complete we will also publish the biographical sketches linked to the respective candidate’s name.

You can now expect campaigning to begin, if not already.  Occasionally members ask us how a candidate was able to obtain their email address to send campaign material directly.  I would like to assure you that PIPSC does not make lists of members’ email addresses available for election campaign purposes.  This being said, members are fully aware that email address are readily available through many alternate sources.

Any member unwilling to receive election campaign material at a specific email address (es) shall notify the Executive Secretary at election@pipsc.ca. Candidates and those acting on behalf of a candidate shall not send election material to any email address contained on the “do not contact” list (PIPSC Regulation 22.4.1).

Thank you.

Respectfully,

Jim McMillan

Chair, National Elections Committee
