ABOUT THE ELECTION

Call for 5 CCPE Regional Delegate Nomination Candidates

The Pharmaceutical Industry Environment has become more complicated and dynamic over the last decade requiring a CCPE Board with a consistently high standard of experience. In an attempt to develop a balance between newly elected Delegates and Delegates with CCPE Board experience, we will be holding elections for 5 Regional Delegate positions in 3 regions.

Elections to be held in:

  • Prairies (MB, SK, AB): 1 Delegate
  • Ontario: 3 Delegates
  • Atlantic Canada: 1 Delegate

The representative(s) with the most votes in each region will be nominated for election by the member companies at the AGM to be held in December 2021.

The Role and Responsibilities of Regional Delegates

Regional Delegates are a vital link between the CCPE Board of Directors and the Pharmaceutical community within their respective regions. Regional Delegates are advisors on issues related to CCPE mandates, namely course orientation and relevance, exam process, professional development, marketing and image. Both in the field and within their organizations, Delegates promote the value of CCPE to all stakeholders. At the Board level they provide input, act as a sounding board, actively debate and influence decisions critical to the operation of the organization.

All delegates will sit on the CCPE board of directors for a period of two years. The workload is less than 4 days a year which includes up to 4 Board meetings (Teleconferences and/or in-person), meeting preparation and any post meeting review of meeting minutes, strategic planning and governance information. Meetings are held on a Tuesday once a quarter and start no earlier than 10 AM and finish no later than 4:30 PM to accommodate travel. Travel and accommodation to the meetings which you attend in-person are paid by CCPE.
