Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) is seeking nominees to fill five Member Director positions that will be up for election this fall.  This year there are openings for both Regular and Associate Member Director positions. Four of these Board positions are three year terms with terms expiring at the 2021 Annual General Meeting and one position will be a one year term expiring in 2019.The current Governance Policy provides a strong role in the STEP Board's own leadership and management of its succession, renewal, and recruitment of Board Directors. Board of Director candidates are asked to self-identify what competencies, background and skills they would bring to the STEP Board. The process also includes the important consideration of such fundamental criteria as a stated commitment to STEP's organizational values, an absence of major conflict of interest, local and international reputation, high personal integrity, a track-record of achievement and dedicated commitment and focus to the necessary time required to serve on the Board. Nominees must be Members in "good standing" with STEP. 

In terms of process, the STEP Governance & Nominations Committee will oversee the Board member recruitment, nomination and succession process. The objective is to ensure there is a continuity of qualified Board members to govern the organization. The Board-approved slate of qualified applicants will be presented at the Annual General Meeting to be held on October 18, 2018. Prospective candidates are asked to complete and forward an application form, skills matrix document and a detailed biography prior to May 28, 2018
