The guidelines are set out in paragraph 6 of the Bylaws of COI.
Here is a brief outline of the election process as set out in the COI bylaws:

  1. Decide which position you wish to stand for; Service board members are required to have different lengths of abstinence. Chair, Treasurer and World Service Delegate and Region 6 Representative need to have one year of current abstinence. Committee chairs and the remaining officer positions require six months.

  2. Fill in the service board application which you can also find at the end of the By-laws posted on the COI website.

  3. Send the completed resume to chair@oaontario.org by the September Intergroup meeting on September 14th.

  4. The resume will be reviewed by the current service board officers. After reviewing the resume, you will be invited to attend the October Intergroup meeting to present your resume and discuss the position you are standing for.

  5. Elections will be held by voting at the November Intergroup meeting.

  6. Every position begins its term at the December Intergroup meeting.
