In advance of the Annual General Meeting to be held on June 25, 2024 at 12:00pm, we are opening the call for nominations for election to the Board of Directors. This year, there are four positions to be filled. Successful candidates will be announced at the AGM.


The CPA Nova Scotia Board consists of twelve members, comprised of ten CPAs and two public representatives. CPA members are elected for three-year terms, with a maximum of two consecutive terms. The Board meets approximately eight times per year, usually on Friday mornings. Meetings are regularly held at the CPA Nova Scotia offices in Halifax, with a hybrid meeting option available and in-person attendance is encouraged, where possible. The Board also undertakes periodic training and strategic planning.  Travel expenses related to attending board meetings are reimbursed.

In addition to regular meetings, Board Members are expected to participate in at least one of following committees of the Board - Governance, Audit, Nominations, or as a Director of the Accounting Education Foundation, a non- profit organization established to promote accounting education in the province. Committees and the Foundation board typically meet several times a year, and their work is supported by CPA Nova Scotia staff.

Elected Board Members should also be willing to consider joining the Executive Committee if asked to do so. The Executive Committee meets monthly with the CEO and the Chair and Vice-Chair participate in national meetings, requiring occasional travel. Apart from those two roles, travel is not expected of Directors.

Board Members are also encouraged to attend key CPA Nova Scotia events such as Convocation, the AGM, and the Member Awards Dinner.

This year, there are four (4) open board positions to be filled.  The Nominations Committee has identified the following characteristics as those which would bring benefit to the current Board composition:

Public practice license holder (firms of any size)
Employment within government
Live or work outside the Halifax Regional Municipality
