A message to the parents of John Abbott College students


John Abbott College is launching a search for interested parents of students currently attending John Abbott College, who are not members of the College staff, to fill two (2) parent representative positions on its 19-member Board of Governors.

The Board is composed of members from various groups, including parents.

The Board sets major College policies and looks toward the future academic and community aspirations of the College; the Board usually meets six to seven times a year, in the evenings. Members work in a voluntary capacity and parent members serve for a two-year term.

Board election procedures require that parents be nominated and elected by parents attending a meeting called for by the Secretary General; candidates must also be present during such meeting which will be held as follows:

Date: Wednesday, September 20, 2023
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Place: Anne-Marie Edward Building, Room AME-120

If you have a child registered at John Abbott College, you are eligible to vote for the parent members by attending this meeting.

In line with John Abbott College’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, parents from diverse and minoritized groups are encouraged and welcome to apply.

We look forward to meeting you.

Voula Makris, Secretary General
