A career-expanding opportunity is opening up for the 1400 Licensed Practical Nurses in northern Alberta to guide the practical nurse profession in the province. The CLPNA Council elections will be held in June 2018 for representatives to the Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray areas.

To run, eligible LPNs must have an Active Practice Permit from CLPNA and reside in the Election District. Nomination Forms must be submitted by May 31, 2018. District Elections are held in June by email ballot.

This is the first year where all Election Districts will be on a regular staggered schedule of three-year terms. In 2017, both northern districts ran elections for a one-year term.

Council meets quarterly to plan and evaluate CLPNA’s annual Strategic Plan, policies and finances to achieve regulatory excellence. Successful Council members are team-oriented, servant-leaders focused on the future of the LPN profession.
