It’s time to nominate Students for a Free Tibet Canada’s Board of Directors!
The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall strategic direction of SFT and for the financial health of the organization. In order to ensure that students and the most active SFT volunteers determine the direction of the organization, SFT Canada’s Board of Directors are nominated by active student chapters and individual student members (please see definitions below).
If you meet this criteria, you are eligible to nominate candidates for SFT Canada’s Board of Directors. Please read the personal statements of candidates applying for the seats on SFT’s Board and nominate your choices.
Please choose your top 4 candidates and send your nomination to: firstname.lastname@example.org
All nominations must be received by Friday January 21st, 2011 to be counted. New board members will take office in February 2011.

The four (4) candidates who receive the highest number of nominations by SFT’s membership will be identified as the chosen slate. The current Board of Directors will then elect to offer these individuals a seat on the board.
The maximum membership on the Board of Directors is ten (10) board members (nine (9) voting members + the National Director). This year, four (4) board terms have expired and four (4) seats are therefore open for nomination.
Process: Only registered (dues paying) student members, individual members, and chapters of Students for a Free Tibet Canada are eligible to nominate (4) candidates for SFT’s Board of Directors. If you are:
- A member of a registered chapter of SFT you may vote and we will confirm your membership with your Chapter Contact;
- A registered individual student member and you have NOT chosen your candidate as part of a dues-paying chapter, you may vote
- A student who has not paid an individual membership fee, your chapter has not paid its dues in the last calendar year, you are not eligible to participate in this process.
Thank you for your support!
