Expression of interest
Members can submit an Expression of Interest form that
identifies the board(s) and/or committee(s) for which they want to be
Members may select one, more than one, or all board and committees.
Members are asked to briefly explain why their interested in serving,
and to provide additional information or experience that could be
considered in the selection process.
Note: Expressions of Interest will be kept for two years. After two years members will have to re-submit.
A list of current and upcoming vacancies will be maintained. Vacancies will also be communicated through doctorsNS and in the Doctors Nova Scotia e-newsletter.
Upon submission, expressions of interest are added to a database. When a vacancy arises, Doctors Nova Scotia staff search the database for all members who indicated an interest in being considered for a specific committee or who have an interest in being considered for all committees.
The committee with the vacancy will review the expressions of interest and recommend at least one candidate to the Board of Directors for consideration and approval. In the case of selecting regional representatives for the Board of Directors, the association’s Nominating Committee will review the applications and make the recommendation.
Notification of consideration
Any member whose expression of interest is considered for a committee vacancy will be notified by email. All applicants under consideration will be notified once a selection has been made and approved by the Board of Directors.
