Those interested in joining CNS 2021-22 council or executive must submit Call for Nominations form by May 6.

APRIL 5, 2021 – If you’d like to help strengthen Canada’s nuclear sector, now is your chance to get involved. The Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) is inviting nominees to stand for election for the next CNS council and executive that will be formed for the June 2021-2022 period.

To participate, those interested need to complete the Call for Nominations to CNS Council 2021-2022 Form and return it to the CNS by Thursday, May 6. (Please note, this requirement also applies to current members of the CNS council who wish to serve another term.)

At the CNS Annual General Meeting (AGM), June 6, the council and executive for the 2021-22 term will be announced. The election process enables CNS members to have a direct role in ensuring the sustainability of the CNS.

Council members have two roles: one is to participate in the governing process abiding by the CNS’s relevant acts and by-laws, and the other, is to help the CNS achieve its strategic objectives through active participation in society business.

The CNS’s objectives include acting as a forum for the exchange of information relating to nuclear science and technology and fostering the development and beneficial use of nuclear science and technology for peaceful purposes. As well, CNS encourages education in, and knowledge about, nuclear science and technology while enhancing the professional and technical capabilities of those involved in nuclear science and technology in the Canadian context.

The CNS Past Presidents’ Committee is responsible for oversight and administration of CNS elections.
