Join the CAUBO Board of Directors
Nominations Now Open!

CAUBO is currently seeking candidates from university member institutions to serve on its Board of Directors. Members who volunteer to take on leadership and committee roles are vital to helping CAUBO keep a finger on the pulse of the higher education administrative sector. They also help determine and support CAUBO’s strategic priorities and core values.

The CAUBO Board of Directors is composed of eleven to thirteen directors, normally twelve, typically with two directors drawn from each of  four regions (the West, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic, i.e. regional members) with the balance of the directors (members-at-large) elected based on a set of criteria.

Taking into consideration the composition of the current CAUBO Board including geographic representation, institutional size and skillset, the Board will be accepting nominations to fill the following positions in June 2022:

  • One Board member from Quebec, open to persons who hold the position of Vice-President, Administration and Finance (or equivalent) or Associate Vice-President, at a large sized CAUBO member institution (> 25,000 student FTEs)
  • One Board member from the Atlantic region, open to persons who hold the position of Vice-President, Administration and Finance (or equivalent) at a small CAUBO member institution (< 10,000 student FTEs)

The term is for four years beginning on September 22, 2022 and ending on June 22, 2026 and is renewable once.

Individuals need not have a high level of experience in the higher education sector.  Their experience at a senior level from other sectors would be considered highly valuable in bringing a new perspective to the Board.

Submission deadline: July 22, 2022

CAUBO is governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of representatives from each of the four regions of Canada (Atlantic, Québec, Ontario, and West), and an Executive Committee consisting of the officers of the Board. Directors serve for a four-year term that is renewable once.
