OPSOA President-Elect Nominations

The Nominating Committee of the Ontario Public Supervisory Officers' Association (OPSOA) is calling for nominations from active members for the position of President-Elect for 2021-2022. The successful candidate would join OPSOA's Executive Committee for a period of three years in the positions of President-Elect, President and Past-President.

The role of the President-Elect is to assist the President and to observe the role of the President before undertaking that position. It is recognized that the duties in the second year of the term, while President, could necessitate time out of district to attend meetings, present OPSOA positions, support regional activities, and act generally as the official representative of public supervisory officers. The President will be supported in all areas of duty by the Executive, the Board of Directors, the Executive Director, and Supervisory Officers from across the province.
