2023 Call for Nominations

Dear ADRIO Member,

I am writing to encourage you to stand for election for the ADRIO Board of Directors.

At the 2021 AGM, ADRIO members approved changes to the bylaws regarding governance structures and processes. These changes include the opportunity for members to self-nominate, a reduction in board size (17 members in 2022 and 13 members starting 2023) and a limit of four consecutive terms for directors. 

Members applying for nomination as a candidate for election to the Board of Directors pursuant to ADRIO’s By-Law No.1, Section 10 should note the following:

  • The 2023-2024 Board of Directors will be comprised of thirteen Directors.
  • At the 2023 Annual General Meeting, seven Directors are to be elected. These elected Directors will have a two (2) year term of office from the date of the 2023 Annual General Meeting until the second Annual General Meeting after such election.
  • The seven Directors to be elected at the 2023 Annual General Meeting will be determined by the Scrutineers who will count the votes cast by ballots and select: Two (2) nominees from outside the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) with the largest aggregate number of votes, and; remaining nominees whether from within or outside the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) with the largest aggregate number of votes.
