Raymond Adlington is CBA vice-president

  • July 14, 2017

Raymond Adlington, a tax law specialist with McInnes Cooper in Halifax, has been elected CBA Vice-president.

It seems like we’ve been in election mode all year, with first the Board elections, and then having to elect a replacement board member from the Northwest Territories (Tricia Ralph won that election), and then the election to select the vice-president, who will become CBA President following Kerry Simmons.

Voters in this election were the 2016-17 Board of Directors, the National Section Chairs and the National Forum Chairs.

Three members of the 2017-18 Board came forward as candidates for the vice-presidential position. The other two were: Jeff Howe, an aboriginal and treaty law specialist and sole proprietor in Saskatchewan; and Marie Laure Leclerq, who specializes in intellectual property and commercial law as counsel with De Grandpré Chait in Montreal.

The lineup for the 2017-2018 Board is now complete. The new Board will take over on Sept. 1 and oversee the transition to the new CBA governance model.
