Board of Directors

CFPC Board of Directors – Call for nominations now open

The CFPC Board of Directors Nominating Committee is now accepting applications for 2016 Board Director positions.

In November 2015, CFPC members approved transitioning from a Board of 40 Directors to a smaller, skills-based Board of 11 Directors. Four of the Directors are Officers (President, President-Elect, Past President, and Honorary Secretary-Treasurer) and seven are Directors-at-Large.

The Board is seeking applications for three Director-at-Large positions. All applications are welcome while preference will be placed on those that meet the following criteria in order to ensure a balance of skills, experience and geographic representation among all Board members:

Family physicians who are:

  • in their first five years of practice or family medicine residents;
  • working in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, or the Territories;
  • medical education leaders;
  • bilingual (English and French);
  • familiar with fee-for-service practice  

The Nominating Committee and Board are committed to ensuring its composition reflects the diversity of the profession.

The Nominating Committee will retain all applications of applicants who are not successful for 2016 for consideration in future recruitment years.

Nominations will remain open until April 1, 2016.
