    Happy 2021!!!

    The executive have set up an on line AGM for all CAR/ACF members in good standing (membership dues are paid up to date. Nominations for elected positions can be put forward during the AGM. Scheduling and working out detail proved to be quite a challenge. Given that our nation spans 5 time zone and that members work days as well as other personal commitments gave us little elbow room in scheduling an AGM. We recognize that to ensure that a nominating mechanism is needed for members who are unable to attend the AGM. We therefore will have the option for member who cannot attend of having nominations sent to the CAR/ACF Elections Officer, Allen Upward. Allen will put forward the nominations at the AGM on behalf of members who cannot attend to ensure.

    Here is a time line for elections and the AGM.

    Heureux 2021!!!!

    L’exécutif du CAR/ACF organise une assemblée générale annuelle ( AGA) en ligne à laquelle tous les membres en règle (cotisation annuelle à jour) pourront participer. Les  mises en candidature pour les postes électifs pourront être présentées lors de l’AGA. L’organisation et la planification de ces activités se sont avérées très complexes.

     Considérant que le pays couvre 5 fuseaux horaires et que nos membres travaillent ou ont des engagements personnels, nous avions peu de marge de manœuvre pour  le planning de l’AGA.

     Nous reconnaissons qu’il faut un mécanisme permettant aux membres qui ne peuvent participer à l’AGA de soumettre leur candidature. Nous avons donc une option qui permet aux membres qui ne peuvent participer à l’AGA de soumettre leur mise en candidature via le responsable de l’élection du CAR/ACF M. Allen Upward. Allen soumettra lesdites mises en candidature lors de l’AGA.

    Voici la chronologie pour l’élection et l’AGA
