EC Board of Directors – 2016 Election   

Following the successful implementation of new By-laws and Articles of Continuance in 2015, EC has modernized its governance framework to more effectively deliver on its mandate, which is to represent, promote and advance the sport in Canada, and to represent, promote and advance all related equine and equestrian interests. With over 18,000 sport licence holders, 90,000 registered participants, and 10+ national equine affiliate organizations, EC is a significant contributor to the social, physical, emotional and economic wellbeing of the equine and equestrian industry across Canada.

In early 2016, a call was put out for candidate nominations to the 2016 EC Board of Directors.

Per Bylaw 4.2 a) there were six (6) Director positions to be filled by election in 2016:
•    Four (4) positions will be for a three-year term ending in 2019.
•    Two (2) positions will be for a two-year term ending in 2018.

In accordance with the Call for Nominations that was issued Jan. 6, 2016 and the timelines provided at that time, thirteen (13) applications were received by Feb. 1, 2016.  The Nominating Committee interviewed all applicants and unanimously agreed on the eight (8) candidates.

The ballot was put forward to a vote on March 8, 2016, and the successful candidates were elected by 26 of the 27 voting members from Categories A, B, and C, as defined in the Equine Canada Governance Policy Manual.
