Three candidates seek to represent HSA members in Region 3

During the next several weeks HSA members in Region 3 will have an opportunity to elect their representative on the HSA Board of Directors.

Nominations for the position closed on February 21 with three members declaring their candidacy: Tanis Blomly, a recreation therapist at Eagle Ridge Hospital; Susan Hearsey, a physiotherapist at Burnaby Hospital, and Bruce MacDonald, a social worker at Royal Columbian Hospital.

In the coming weeks, all members in Region 3 will receive an election package in the mail which includes candidate biographies, voting instructions, a ballot, and a return envelope.

Ballots must be received in the HSA office no later than: midnight on Tuesday, April 4, 2006.

The new Regional Director will serve the remainder of the two-year term, which ends at the conclusion of HSAs 2007 annual convention.

The vacancy was created by the resignation of Maureen Ashfield who has served in the position since 2005. Maureen resigned from the board earlier this year due to a serious illness in her family.
