Doors open at 6:00 PM and the meeting shall be called to order around 6:30 PM. The election shall be held by secret ballot. Proof of residence is required to attend the meeting. Please ensure that you bring a valid piece of ID with you that shows your name and address OR a piece of ID that shows your name and a supporting document such as a utility bill. Parking and entry to the cafeteria can be found at the back of the Adult High School.

In order to stand for election as a delegate, you must meet the membership criteria as outlined above and have submitted a completed candidate form signed by two active members who reside within Ottawa Centre to the President of the Ottawa Centre Conservative Association prior to the delegate selection vote at the Delegate Selection Meeting. Candidates will be given the option to submit a one (1) paragraph bio / reason for being elected as a delegate and given one (1) minute to speak at the Delegate Selection Meeting in support of their candidacy. Candidates that submit their one paragraph prior to April 15th at 12:00 PM will have it published in the programme that will be distributed at the meeting. You can email your completed candidate form and one paragraph to the president at [email protected] or call 905-410-2207 for any questions you may have.

It is important to note that the costs associated with going to the convention as a delegate can easily add up to $1,500+ for the entire weekend. Our association is unable to provide financial support for elected delegates. Upon submission of the candidate form to the president, you agree that if you are successful in being elected as a delegate that you will submit the required delegate fee in a timely manner. Failure to provide the required registration fee may result in you not being permitted to attend the 2023 Conservative Convention.
