2020 Call for Nominations to the ICOM Canada Board

Additional information about the 2020 AGM can be found here.


Dear Members,

As the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, ICOM Canada has made the decision to postpone our Annual General Meeting, originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at the Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel. Information about the rescheduled meeting will be available soon.

ICOM Canada does, however, wish to move forward with the call for nominations in preparation for our AGM and next year of business. We are actively seeking members to serve on the ICOM Canada Board of Directors to further the Board’s mission, mandate, and strategic priorities. These include advancing the primary aims and objectives of ICOM, increasing public awareness of Canadian museums and cultural heritage institutions within Canada and to the international museum and cultural heritage community, and making ICOM Canada more vital in the professional life of its members.

If this opportunity to volunteer your time on the national committee is of interest and you wish to put your name forward for election, please notify Marie Lalonde at mlalonde@museumsontario.ca before May 8, 2020. Please include a statement of your interest in, and qualifications for, serving on the Board (maximum 250 words), and a short CV (maximum 5 pages).

While we encourage all interested candidates to apply, the ICOM Canada Board has an obligation to represent the cultural and geographical diversity of Canada on Board membership. The ICOM Canada Board Executive will present to the AGM attendees a slate of nominated individuals that reflects this diversity and other considerations as the Executive sees necessary.

As information about the forthcoming AGM becomes available, ICOM Canada will distribute other important AGM materials, including 2019 Financial Statements, International Committee Reports, and the Voting Proxy form. These documents will be available on our website as information becomes available.

I look forward to connecting with you again soon, and wish you continued good health and professional security!


Marie Lalonde
ICOM Canada
