What is a Chapter Leadership Council?

The Chapter Leadership Council (CLC) is the heart of each Autism Ontario Chapter. The members of the CLC ensure that the business and general operations of the Chapter run smoothly. Joining the CLC is a tremendous way to both give back to a dedicated organization and to assist in progressing Autism Ontario toward its’ strategies, vision and mission. CLC’s are not advisory boards or tasked with governance issues. They are vibrant and energetic groups of people who are working to make a difference in their communities.

How does the election work?

The Annual Chapter Meeting (ACM) will be held on April 24, 2017. Elections will be held at the ACM. Anyone who is a member-in-good-standing of the Hamilton Region Chapter as of March 24, 2017 is eligible to vote in the elections. Voters must be present at the meeting.

The election is held with members-in-good-standing voting to fill a maximum of twelve positions on the CLC. Members do not vote specific people to specific roles; for instance, one would vote for Jane Doe to become a member of the CLC, not for Jane Doe to become President.

Anyone who is elected to the CLC must be a member-in-good-standing of Autism Ontario or become one immediately upon election.

Once the twelve people have been voted to comprise the CLC, the CLC will then determine which member will take on which role. This discussion will focus on who has necessary skill sets, willingness to take on specific tasks, etc. When more than one person is interested in the same role, the CLC must work to a consensus agreement on who will take the position.

Looking forward to seeing you then!
