HEU Provincial Executive 2024-2026 Elections

At HEU’s 34th biennial convention, scheduled October 20 – 25 at the Vancouver Convention Centre East, delegates will elect 26 members to the Provincial Executive (P.E.). The P.E. governs our union between conventions. There are 27 members on the P.E. but the Senior Trustee-Elect is a four-year term.

The HEU Constitution and By-Laws set out a process for convention delegates, who are interested in running for a position on the Provincial Executive (P.E.), to “submit their photograph, brief biographies, and maximum 200-word candidate statement…” 90 days before the convention.

It’s important to note that participating in this process is not a requirement for those delegates who wish to seek election.

Brief biographies are limited to 100 words, while candidate statements are limited to 200 words. Light editing for spelling and grammar will be provided by Provincial Office staff, but not the content. The word limit is strictly enforced.

The online submission deadline is Tuesday, July 23 at 5:00 p.m. as per the HEU constitution.

Please note: any HEU delegate can seek nomination for election at convention, whether or not they have submitted a statement by the July 23 deadline.

You must be a delegate to the HEU convention in order to run for election to the Provincial Executive. You can find a description of the roles of the P.E. positions in Article 7 of the constitution.
