How do I apply?

.CA Members can nominate themselves or another individual by completing the online Nomination Form from July 31 – August 13. Once nominated, Nominees will receive an email with a link to complete an online Nominee Application Form. The Nominee must complete and submit the form before 8 p.m. ET on August 13. Although only .CA Members can submit a nomination, a nominee is not required to be a member.

To be included on the Final Members’ Slate, Member Nominees must then receive the endorsement of at least 20 CIRA Members during the Show of Support stage. For 2012, there are two seats to be filled. One seat will hold a three-year term and the replacement seat will hold a one-year term.
