Call for Applications: ICOM Canada’s 2020 Annual General Meeting


 

 Deadline: 6 April 2020

 

ICOM Canada cordially invites you to attend ICOM Canada’s 2020 Annual General Meeting, which will be held on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel at 1201 RenéLévesque Blvd W during the Canadian Museums Association’s National Conference in Montreal, Quebec.


ICOM Canada is interested in connecting with our members who are active on international committees for increased collaboration, especially regarding conferences to be held in Canada. At the AGM, we invite our members involved in international committees to report on their activities.


The President’s and Treasurer’s reports will be presented along with the audited 2019 Financial Statements. We are pleased to send you the link for the business of the AGM (April 15, 2020). Please do take the time to
review these documents prior to the meeting.


We are actively seeking members to serve on the ICOM Canada Board of Directors to further the Board’s mission, mandate, and strategic priorities. These include advancing the primary aims and objectives of ICOM, increasing public awareness of Canadian museums and cultural heritage institutions within Canada and to the international museum and cultural heritage community, and making ICOM Canada more vital in the professional life of its members.


If this opportunity to volunteer your time on the national committee is of interest and you wish to put your name forward for election, please notify Marie Lalonde at mlalonde@museumsontario.ca. Please include a statement of your interest in, and qualifications for, serving on the Board (maximum 250 words), and a short CV (maximum 5 pages).


While we encourage all interested candidates to apply, the ICOM Canada Board has an obligation to represent the cultural and geographical diversity of Canada on Board membership. The ICOM Canada Board Executive will present a slate of nominated individuals that reflects this diversity and other considerations as the Executive sees necessary.


If you are unable to attend the AGM, it is possible to participate by proxy. We encourage you to vote to determine the new members of the Board of Directors by completing the voting form.
