GPOP Leadership Opportunities: Notice of Two Vacancies on Board of Directors

A message from Shelagh Donnelly, Chair, GPOP/PGBDG Nominating Committee and Board of Directors

If you’re looking for an opportunity that combines professional development and service to your national peers, submit your expression of interest in a leadership role on GPOP’s Board of Directors. Expressions of interest should be sent to the Nominating Committee on or before May 14, 2015.

Secretary-Treasurer Jennifer Clark will conclude her service on the Board effective upon the conclusion our May 2015 AGM, and past Director Nicole Blanchette is enjoying a new career in another sector. With appreciation for both Ms. Blanchette’s and Ms. Clark’s expertise and contributions, the Board has established a Nominating Committee to fill these two vacancies.

You’ll want to know that, while capacity to attend the 2015 or 2016 AGM is ideal, that is not a requirement for the role of Director. What is required? A readiness to serve on one or more of GPOP’s three standing committees, which conduct business by email and conference call. You’ll want to be prepared to participate in meetings of the Board of Directors, which are conducted by conference call and in person at our AGMs; we also turn to email for decision making that must be accomplished within tight time frames.

Click here for more details and the formal Call for Expressions of Interest in these important roles. Service as a Director will commence on May 24, 2015 and will conclude upon the close of GPOP’s 2016 AGM. The Board has established a Nominating Committee consisting of Joanna Campbell, Shelagh Donnelly and Jenny Forestell. If you have questions or would like to discuss the opportunity, don’t hesitate to contact any member of the Committee.


Please direct inquiries and expressions of interest to

Shelagh Donnelly, Chair, Nominating Committee, on or before May 14, 2015.
