Election | APEGA


Each year, an APEGA Council election is held. Voting is conducted online over 30 days in early spring so that all members have an equal opportunity to take part and have their voices heard.

The 2019 election closed on March 14, 2019 and the results were announced shortly after.

Council Nominations

Council nominations are opened each year in the fall for the following spring's election. To run for Council, you must be a member in good standing with an eligible membership type and able to commit to the duties of a Councillor and a three-year term. APEGA publishes the top-ranked Council needs in the summer issue of The PEG each year.
