hemo-logoThe current CHS-MC Board is encouraging members to consider running for a 2014/2015 Board position. Elections will take place the morning of Saturday, April 26th at Delta Winnipeg. The organization would benefit from a Board that reflected the diversity of the inherited bleeding disorders community. John Schmitke is the 2014 Nomination Committee Chair. He welcomes all members to send in a nomination form. CHS-MC Board Election Nomination Form 2014

The current board is missing the following profiles: a person with a young child with an inherited bleeding disorder, a person with Von Willebrand’s Disease, a woman with an  inherited bleeding disorder and a young adult between 18 and 25 years of age. For Executive Officer positions, preference will be given to experienced Board members, (current or previous). These positions, with the exception of the Past-President, are available each year as they are 1 year terms. Board Directorships are 2 year terms.
