The Committee encourages member stations to nominate Indigenous and BIPOC folks, and LGBTQ+ and Gender non-conforming folks from your stations to run for the board. NCRA/ANREC members serve an audience recognized as diverse in ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, age, and physical and mental ability, and the NCRA/ANREC board of directors shall continue to aim in reflecting this diversity. 

We also remind members about three very important aspects of our bylaws:A director must be selected as an Indigenous Representative from the First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples of Canada.This means that the NCRA remains devoted to the representation of Indigenous voices and encourages Indigenous identifying individuals to join the Board.

At least four of the six regions of Canada should be represented on the board. The six regions are: the Pacific (British Columbia);the North (Northwest and Yukon Territories, and Nunavut); the Prairies (Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan); OntarioQuebec; and the Atlantic (New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island). There are returning board members from the Atlantic and Ontario, therefore we need to elect two individuals from either the Pacific (British Columbia); the North (Northwest and Yukon Territories, and Nunavut); the Prairies (Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan) or Quebec.

Members shall elect no more than fifty percent men to the board.This means that we remain committed to ensuring room for at least 4 people who do not identify as male!

We have very detailed documentation about what a board member does, how much time and the expectations. It is all outlined here.

If you’re thinking about running and would like to talk more about it, feel welcome to get in touch with for more information.

We can’t wait to have you on board.—Malik NembhardNCRA/ANREC Nominations Committee Chair
