Every year, the CMA holds fair and transparent nominations and elections processes for the position of CMA President-Elect. The call for nominations issued before each election is open to all eligible members.
Dr. Ann Collins was selected in February 2019 as the next CMA President-Elect nominee by the members of the New Brunswick Medical Society (CMA members). This nomination must be ratified during the CMA General Council elections on August 11, 2019 in Toronto, Ontario.
Following ratification, Dr. Collins will serve as CMA President-Elect until the CMA’s Annual General Meeting in 2020, when she will then become CMA President.
Dr. Sandy Buchman is the current CMA President-Elect.
