RMA Board Elections Policy and Procedures
Based on recommendations identified by the 2021 Board Governance Review, the RMA has adopted a Board Elections Policy and related procedures, which guide the process for all elections.
Complete eligibility requirements for members of the RMA Board of Directors are outlined in section E of the RMA Bylaws
, including that the individual must be a duly elected official for a full RMA member municipality. For the position of district directors, individuals must represent a municipality that is within the district that is up for election.
RMA full members interested in joining the Board of Directors are requested to review the Fall 2023 Board of Directors Election Information Package
for detailed information on board roles and responsibilities, the commitment required, and related RMA governance policies. The RMA also encourages members interested in pursuing an RMA board seat to contact a current board member
or Executive Director Gerald Rhodes
to gain a full understanding of the responsibility and commitment required.
As per the RMA Board Elections Policy, candidates are able to submit nomination papers
for both the position of Vice President and the available District Director position that represents their member municipality. In this case, candidates must submit two separate nomination papers and, in the event that the candidate is successful in the Vice President election, their nomination for District Director will be rescinded.
All complete nomination papers must be submitted electronically by 4:30 pm on Monday, October 23, 2023, to the RMA Returning Officer, Olly Morrison, at olly@RMAlberta.com.
