Board Election Information

A non-profit society, the ASCA is governed by an elected, volunteer board of directors comprised of parents on school councils from across Alberta.

Election of the Board of Directors takes place at the Annual General Meeting each April.

Each year is an opportunity for parents on ASCA Member School Councils to expand their knowledge of Alberta’s education system, and their education advocacy efforts, to a provincial level, by running for a position on the Board of Directors.

We urge Superintendents, Principals, Teachers and parents to actively encourage parents in their school communities to consider this opportunity, and we ask that the information on this page regarding the Nominations Process, candidate eligibility, and what it means to be a Director, be shared broadly.
