What does the Nominating Committee look for in a candidate?

The CMPA seeks and values diversity among Council members. A wide range of perspectives and opinions promotes effective governance and is vital to the CMPA’s ability to respond to the complex, multi-stakeholder environment in which it operates. 

We aim for a strong Council where the experience of each member combines to meet the needs of the Association. Our Council seeks to reflect diversity across characteristics such as gender, age, sexual orientation and gender identity, ethnicity and race, as well as geography and medical specialty.

Nominee experience and attributes

Useful experience and attributes for nominees include a strong clinical background, leadership capabilities, outreach work, medical education or research experience, governance, business or legal experience, and financial or investment literacy.

The Nominating Committee assesses and considers the strengths, needs and diversity of Council annually. This assessment guides the selection of the slate of candidates and informs this final report.

Please visit the Nomination and election process page for information on Council representation and descriptions of Division A and B.
