Child and Youth Care Educational Accreditation Board of Canada (CYCEAB)

• Are you an advocate for quality education in child and youth care?
• Are you interested in decision-making and collaborative work in educational accreditation?
• Have you thought about how you might contribute to the future of CYC education?

We are seeking three new members for the CYCEAB Board of Directors.
There are vacancies in our Western, Central and Northern, and Eastern Regions as defined within our bylaws. See our bylaws at CYCEAB-Bylaws-Approved-Jan-20-2022.pdf (

Application deadline is October 11.

Attached is the position description for a director-at-large and our Executive Committee positions.

CYCEAB’s Nominating Committee will review your application and get back to you following the October 11th deadline for applications. We encourage first-time applicants to volunteer for one of CYCEAB’s committees to gain an understanding of the work of the organization and Board of Directors.

Elections for the director-at-large positions will be held at the next Annual General Meeting scheduled for November 17, 2022. The Board of Directors appoints qualified candidates to its Executive Committee positions (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary) at the first board meeting following each Annual General Meeting.

Directors must be 18 years of age or older and they must have an affiliation to a post-secondary institution or a child and youth care association or program. Directors shall serve a term of three years, with a board director from each geographic region elected annually. Board members may serve a maximum of two terms, but they may serve more when the board member is willing to continue and there is no one else to fill the vacant seat.
