By-election to be held in Region 5
During the next several weeks, HSA members in Region 5 will have an opportunity to elect a new representative to the HSA Board of Directors. HSA opened nominations following the election of former Region 5 Director, Reid Johnson as HSA President at the 36th annual convention in April.
Nominations for the position closed on May 15, 2007 with two members declaring their candidacy: Kimball Finigan, a Radiation Therapist at BCCA ... Vancouver Cancer Centre, and Gerald Yu, a Health Records Administrator with Children and Womens Hospital (BC Womens Hospital).
In the coming weeks, all HSA members in Region 5 will receive an election package in the mail which includes voting instructions, candidate biographies, a ballot and a return envelope.
Ballots must be received in the HSA office no later than:
5 p.m. on Thursday, July 12, 2007.
All members are strongly urged to exercise their democratic right to choose a representative to the Board of Directors by participating in this important process.
The results of the election will be announced the week of July 15. The successful candidate will assume the position of Regional Director for the remainder of the two-year term which ends at the conclusion of HSAs 2009 annual convention.
