Election Results and Recommendations from the Elections and Nominations Committee

The Elections and Nominations Committee met last night to accept the results from the Intelivote election held on October 9th between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm in the HRCE and SSRCE. The Committee also met to discuss recommendations for the appointed seats on the Board of Directors. The committee’s recommendations for ratification at the AGM on October 25, 2019 are as follows:

Board of Director Election Results

  • Annapolis Valley Regional Centre for Education
    Maria Carty - Coordinator of Programs and Student Success Planning - Acclaimed
  • Chignecto Central Regional Centre for Education
    Steve Wells - Principal, Cyrus Eaton Elementary - Acclaimed
  • Conseil scolaire acadien provinciale
    Marc Poirier - Directeur, École secondaire de Clare - Acclaimed
  • Halifax Regional Centre for Education
    Kelly MacLeod - Principal, Sackville Heights Junior High - Elected
  • South Shore Regional Centre for Education
    John Doucette - Vice-Principal, Parkview Education Centre - Elected

Board of Director Appointments

  • Director representing members of African Descent
    Karen Hudson - Principal, Auburn Drive High School, HRCE
  • Director representing members of Indigenous Ancestry
    Miranda Gould - Coordinator of Mi'kmaw Services, SRCE
  • Director by appointment #1
    Ron Muller - Principal, John Bernard Croak V.C., CBVRCE
  • Director by appointment #2
    The Nominations and Elections committee is recommending that an expression of interest be reposted for this final seat.  With the current Board of Directors roster there are no representatives from the Director, Regional Executive Director or Superintendent levels of our association.  The committee believes that this is an area of concern because of the unique experience, perspective, and system level knowledge that is contributed by having a Board of Director member working in one of those roles.  It is our intention to post this EOI by Tuesday October 15, 2019 so that the process can be completed before the annual general meeting on October 25, 2019
