The CNS Annual General Meeting (AGM) is scheduled for June 5, 2022. At the AGM the Council and Executive for the 2022-2023 term will be announced. Council Members have two roles: one is to participate in the governing process per the Act and the By-Laws and the other is to help the CNS achieve its Strategic Objectives by active participation in the business of the CNS. The election process enables CNS Members to have a direct role in ensuring the sustainability of the CNS.

Please note that this requirement also applies to the current members of Council who wish to serve another term. For your information, links to ‘Protocol for Nomination to the Council and for Officer of the CNS ’, Code of Conduct and the ‘Conflict of Interest Policy for CNS’ are provided here for your reference.
To help you understand the extent of this commitment, the link to the ‘Expectations and Responsibilities of CNS Council Members’ is also provided.
As you know, the CNS’ objectives are to act as a forum for the exchange of information relating to nuclear science and technology; foster the development and beneficial utilization of nuclear science and technology for peaceful uses; encourage education in, and knowledge about, nuclear science and technology; enhance the professional and technical capabilities of those involved in nuclear science and technology in the Canadian context; and provide a resource of information and communicate to the public, academics, industry and governments concerning issues relating to nuclear science and technology and energy related matters.
Thank you for your continuing support and for your interest to serve on CNS Council,
Chair, Past-Presidents’ Committee
