The Council of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) has adjusted the start of Council Elections from June to August 2020 due to the current strain on LPNs during COVID-19 pandemic.
Nomination Forms for District 2 (Calgary & Area) and District 4 (Edmonton & Area) will be available by June 20. Once elected, the three-year terms begin September 1.
The Council consists of elected members of the profession and three government-appointed public members. Council’s role is to govern the profession and oversee the CLPNA’s management, actions, and policy development within the framework of the Health Professions Act. They meet quarterly with occasional additional meetings or teleconferences.
To run for election, eligible LPNs must have a current CLPNA Practice Permit, be in good standing, and live in the Election District. A cross-reference list of Alberta communities and their Election Districts is available.
