OBA Board of Directors Nominations - 2020

The OBA is led by a Board of 14 dedicated and hard-working volunteers. 

It is critically important to the beekeeping industry in Ontario that your Board represents a diversity of experiences and opinions and that we advocate vigilantly on your behalf to ensure the sustainability of the beekeeping industry in this province. Each year we seek nominations for Board positions.
As of 2014, the OBA implemented a multi-year approach to Board terms allowing for better continuity and succession-planning. Generally, Board positions are for 3-year terms, however, circumstances creating a vacancy could result in a shorter term. 
 
This year there are four (4) Board positions to be filled, with 3-year terms. In addition, a provisional position may be elected, that member to be brought onto the Board should a position become vacant during the year. 
Board composition requires at least nine (9) of the 14 Directors to represent the commercial apiary industry.
