About the Election

Call for 4 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 4 Regional Delegate positions. Please follow the process indicated below if you are interested in submitting your candidacy.

Elections to be held in:

  • Quebec: 1 delegate
  • Ontario: 2 delegates
  • Prairies (AB, SK, MB): 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 2017.

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.

Delegates will attend a total of 4 meetings per year conducted in English in Montreal or via teleconference. Preparation for meetings generally entails not more than 2 or 3 hours of reading. Customary travel costs for delegates will be paid by CCPE.
