Due to a change in term length, most of Alberta’s Licensed Practical Nurses are eligible to run in this year’s Elections to the Council of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta. Four of the most populous Districts will be holding elections on June 14 for District Representatives.
Edmonton and Calgary are electing for three-year terms, while Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray are one-year terms. The unusual one-year terms are a result of the Council Terms of Office Transition Plan approved last March. By 2018, all Districts will be on a staggered schedule of three-year terms.
Edmonton will see a fresh face this year, as District 4’s representative Diane Larsen ends her tenure in August. Council members are restricted to two consecutive terms of office in the same district.
