Board of Directors


The ACPM Board of Directors is comprised of thirtheen volunteer members with two Directors representing each of the following regions of the country: British Columbia, Alberta, Prairies (Saskatchewan and Manitoba), Ontario, Québec,  the Atlantic (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, Newfoundland & Labrador) and one director at large.

When seeking candidates for the Board, the Governance & Nominating Committee makes every effort possible to ensure that the composition of the Board is representative of ACPM membership - the majority being plan sponsors/administrators. Directors serve for a three-year term with four Directors being elected at the Annual General Meeting in September of each year. There is no limit to the number of terms that a Director may serve on the Board. The Chair of the Board, Vice-Chair of the Board and Secretary are elected each year by their fellow Board members at the first Board meeting following the Annual General Meeting.
