CMRTO Election 2016

It's that time of year again - election time!

CMRTO is very pleased to let all MRTs know that we are about to hold our first online election of members to Council. Election 2016 will take place in Districts 1, 4, 7 and 8 on April 6, 2016. MRTs in these districts will receive an email on December 3, 2015 detailing the new online election process, as well as Nomination Forms giving all those interested and eligible the opportunity to stand for election in 2016.

In years past, nominations for Council were received in writing, and members eligible to vote cast their ballots by mail. However, in keeping with CMRTO’s Strategic Plan and movement in favour of web-based communications, Council passed By-laws No. 55 and 56 on September 25, 2015, allowing for electronic elections.

The CMRTO Council is made up of both members of the public, who are appointed by the provincial government and members of the profession, who are elected from the membership. Council is responsible for the governance of the medical radiation technology profession in Ontario. Council has ultimate accountability for meeting CMRTO's mission, and for how this is accomplished. The decision to run for election for this important position attests to an MRT’s commitment and dedication to the profession of medical radiation technology.
