TESL Ontario Board Nominations and Elections

Each year the nominations committee carefully vet all board candidates through a robust nominating procedure. Each potential candidate will have two supporting members and the Nominations Committee review all supporting documents through a carefully developed Nominations Candidate Evaluation Matrix.
