How is the CMA president selected?
The CMA presidency is rotated geographically. Yukon members will present a nominee at the CMA General Council meeting in August 2020 to become CMA president-elect. If Yukon’s choice is ratified, that person will become CMA president in 2021.
Alternatively, in accordance with the CMA’s Operating Rules and Procedures (CMA Bylaw 12.3.4), a candidate from Yukon may be nominated by any 50 CMA members; the nomination must be received 90 days before the CMA’s General Council meeting (generally held in mid-August).
Nominations for individuals wishing to be Yukon’s nominee closed on Nov. 20, 2019.
Candidate information will be posted on cma.ca in mid-January 2020. CMA members in Yukon will be invited to vote between Feb. 5 and 19, 2020.
The winning candidate will be announced on Feb. 20, 2020.

*An election period is only established when there are two or more candidates for CMA president-elect nominee. Voting for the president-elect is conducted electronically by preferential ranked choice ballot, which means that each voter is asked to rank the candidates in order of preference. In casting a vote, voters indicate their first preference by entering “1” in the box beside that person’s name, “2” beside their second choice and so on. The voter is not required to rank all candidates.
