Join the CAUBO Board of Directors – Nominations now open for one member from the Western region!

CAUBO is currently seeking a candidate from university member institutions to fill a vacancy 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 skill set, the Board will be accepting nominations to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the term for the following position as of October 2021:

  • One Board member from the Western region, open to persons who hold the position of Vice-President, Administration and Finance (or equivalent) at a large, research-intensive CAUBO member institution (> 25,000 student FTEs)

The term is normally for four years, but this term begins in October 2021 and ends in June 2024, 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: October 1, 2021

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.
