Call for Members: Assessment and Certification Committee
The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) is looking for volunteers to fill six vacant positions within its Assessment and Certification Committee. Tasked with overseeing and supporting the Assessment and Certification team, the committee reviews assessment and implementation reports, makes recommendations on the assessment and certification of academic, government, and private organizations that use animals in science, and aids with the development or renewal of policies and best practices for the assessment and certification of animal care and use programs.
The CCAC is seeking veterinarians (bilingual preferred), laboratory animal technicians, and researchers in particular; however, all those with an interest are invited to apply. The CCAC strives to reflect the diversity of both the animal care and use community and society in its committees, to the greatest extent possible.
Members will be appointed to serve an initial term of three years. Appointees are eligible for reappointment by the CCAC Board of Directors but may not serve more than six consecutive years, except in the case of extenuating circumstances. Members will be approved by both the CCAC Governance and Nominations Committee and the board.
We would be grateful if you could please forward the names, brief biographies, CVs, and contact information of suitable candidates to the CCAC Secretariat at by July 28, 2023. Self-nominations are also welcome.
