(1) AAO Board of Directors Election - 2016 Nomination Process

Nominations are currently being accepted for three (3) positions on the Board of Directors of the AAO. Each term will commence upon election at the AAO’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), to be held on May 12, 2016.

Volunteering as a Director on the AAO Board offers an invaluable professional development experience. It provides candidates with an opportunity to network with other professionals in the field, develop their leadership skills, and to apply their existing knowledge and skill set to the service of Ontario’s archival community.

Positions that are currently open for nominations include:

Vice-President/President Elect: Three-year term (May 2016 - May 2019)

The Vice-President/President Elect (VP) serves as the deputy to the President, and provides assistance in all aspects of Board planning and policy decision-making.

  • Performing the duties of the President in cases of absence or inability; and
  • Supporting the President in providing general supervision of the operations of the AAO, its staff, and the secretariat office.

The VP assumes the position of President in the second year of his or her term; and in the third year serves as a non-voting member of the Board in the capacity of Past President.
