Dear CSLA Fellows,
Have you ever considered being part of the jury that selects who will join the CSLA College of Fellows? If so, you may want to submit your name and CV for inclusion in the “College of Fellows Jury Pool”.
Every year, a jury is assembled to determine who will be selected among the nominated candidates for election to Fellowship.
The members of the jury are tasked with:
- reviewing and assessing the nominations against the criteria for election into the College of Fellows
- adhering to the College of Fellows Conflict of Interest Policy
- having their name, biography and picture published on the CSLA website
The jury is composed of six members who serve for three-year, overlapping terms (which means that a juror may be involved in up to 4 review periods, depending on the date of their appointment). One of the six jurors is appointed Chair of the Jury by the Chair of the College.
In appointing the jury, six regions of the country must be represented: British Columbia, the Prairie Provinces, Ontario, Quebec, the Atlantic Provinces and the North. In addition to having a geographic representation, we also aim to seek a balance in type of practice, diversity, range of perspectives, education and more.
The nominations (up to 30 pages each) are reviewed by the jury in February and March, and a jury meeting of 2-3 hours in length is held in March.
The Jury Pool
The College of Fellows is asking members who may be interested in becoming a juror in the future to submit their names and CVs for inclusion in the “College of Fellows Jury Pool”. Your name may or may not be selected in the near or distant future but having this information will ensure that the College of Fellows Jury continues to be balanced, diverse, and includes the participation of as wide an array of Fellows as possible.
Please submit your CVs to Wendy Shearer, Secretary of the College of Fellows, at firstname.lastname@example.org at your convenience.
