Upcoming Board Elections

  • Be sure to get your voting authorization forms in!

We will be holding elections for several board positions at our upcoming Region Meetings in October.  We will be electing the following positions:

NORTH – Region Meeting October 19
Vice President North Region
Director North Region (2 Director positions available)

CENTRAL – Region Meeting October 12
Vice President Central Region
Director Central Region

SOUTH – Region Meeting October 11
Director South Region

Please be sure to submit your Voting Authorization Forms, which were sent out by email to all regular member organizations' main contacts, before your region meeting.  Please make sure to register those with voting authority for the region meetings.

It is strongly recommended that those seeking positions be in attendance at the Region Meeting to actively participate in our elections process.  We have found there is a strong correlation between region meeting attendance/engagement and success in obtaining a Board position.


ASCHA Launches a New Strategic Direction

  • A New Path Forward For The Association

ASCHA’s new strategic direction looks to the future of the association and the industry, with direct focus on member and public engagement.  Tackling housing issues and building an engaging advocacy approach to address these issues requires active messaging from our members and Albertans in general.  This will have significant impacts on shaping the culture and policies of our industry well into the future.  This is an important shift for the association and we look forward to updating you further at our upcoming Region Meetings.  As always, we welcome your thoughts on this path forward!
