Nominations & Elections

The election process will begin on the morning of Thursday, April 27th with the election of the Table Officers (President, 1st Vice-President and 2nd Vice President).  Once these positions are filled, elections will continue in the afternoon for the 7 Directors at Large.  Unsuccessful candidates for the Table Officer positions may run for a Director at Large position in the second ballot. Nominations from the floor will be accepted.

Please note the changes to the voting procedures as amended in the 2017 SILGA constitution. 

7.10     The election of Officers to the Executive shall be held at the Annual General Meeting on a first ballot and that of the Directors at Large subsequently on a second ballot.  Any candidate that is unsuccessful in obtaining an Officer position on the first ballot may become a candidate for a Director at Large position on the second ballot.

7.11     If, in the election of the Officers to the Executive on the first ballot, an Electoral Area Director of a regional district is elected, the Director at Large positions will then be filled by the candidates with the most votes.

 7.12     If, in the election of the Officers to the Executive on the first ballot, an Electoral Area Director of a regional district is not elected, then in the election of the Directors at Large, the candidate - of those candidates that are Electoral Area Directors of a regional district - with the most votes will be elected as a Director at Large and the balance of the Director at Large positions will be filled by the remaining candidates with the most votes.  If only one Electoral Area Director of a regional district candidate runs for a Director at Large position, that candidate will be acclaimed.

All positions are for a one year term and those presently serving may run for another term if they wish, except for the President who can only serve for two consecutive terms. 

The SILGA nomination committee is chaired by Director Rhona Martin, CSRD.
