Join the SAC Board of Directors, the 2022-2023 application process is now open!
Applying to be on SAC’s Board of Directors provides you an opportunity to play a key role in helping SAC achieve its strategic goals and objectives, have the voice of your profession heard, learn new skills and competencies and expand your network.
In 2022, there will be three (3) Director vacancies on the Board, one Director-Member (Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology), One Director-Communication Health Assistant and one Director-Student. Please note: The current Director-Communication Health Assistant (Gillian Purdy) will be standing for re-election.
Board terms are for a period of three years (2022-2025). SAC follows a competency-based model for our Board. While we encourage all interested members to apply, we are particularly seeking individuals with knowledge, experience, skills and attributes in the following areas.
- Governance, Financial Management, Human Resources, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Only two Directors may serve on the Board from each province or territory. In 2022 SAC will not be accepting any applications from British Columbia.
The Nominations Committee encourages applications from members who identify as First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples, members of visible minorities, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as gender diverse. Members with experience working with marginalized populations and knowledge of cultural safety and humility are also helpful to support the Board. SAC is committed to achieving a diverse directorship representative of the public it serves and being inclusive towards all.
