Council Elections

Council elections occur each year, assuming there are more council nominations than vacancies. Newly elected or acclaimed councillors take office at the annual general meeting following the election. The process for appointing lay councillors is handled separately.

We are now accepting nominations for the 72nd ABCFP Council from ABCFP members. All eligible members* are allowed to vote once, either by mail or electronic ballot.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, October 26, 2017.

There are two positions available: one RPF and one RFT. Both are for three-year terms.

This year's election will take place from December 10, 2018 to January 10, 2019 and the new Council will take office at the AGM in Kamloops, February 7, 2019.

We are also preparing for the appointment of a second lay councillor by the provincial government. The 72nd ABCFP council will take office at the 2019 conference in Kamloops, February 6-8.
