Call for Nominations For CCBC Board of Directors

The Canadian Children’s Book Centre’s Annual
General Meeting is taking place on Tuesday June 8 2021 virtually. In accordance with Section 3.04(b) of our bylaws please accept this notice as a formal call for the nomination of directors. The members will elect new director(s) to the board to fill any vacancies at the Annual General Meeting. We welcome nominations from the general membership.

 Qualities we are looking for in a potential board member:

  • strong belief in and commitment to the mission and goals of the CCBC
  • would be interested in people with background in finance, public relations, fundraising, IT or website specialization
  • must work well in groups
  • although not essential, a plus would be some background in children’s literature
  • able to commit to giving time and energy to the organization

Once a nomination is received by the nominating committee of the board it will issue to the nominee a form of consent that must be completed by the nominee and returned as soon as reasonably possible and in any event prior to the Annual General Meeting. A nominee shall also meet any other requirements for nomination determined by the board of directors from time to time.

If you are a member in good standing with the Canadian Children’s Book Centre and have someone in mind who you think would be an asset to the CCBC and its mission and goals, please send the name of the person you are nominating along with their mailing address, email address, current telephone number and a short bio to Rose Vespa at
