Nominees may include
Members of the Judiciary
Specific professionals to be considered for Distinguished Member status may be put forward by the AFCC Alberta board and the AFCC Alberta Programming Committee. Final selections of Distinguished Member nominees will be made annually by the AFCC Alberta Programming Committee, in accordance with the selection criteria.
Distinguished Member nominees will present a 45-to-60-minute webinar to the AFCC Alberta community, on a topic or topics of their choosing. The intent is for the talk to be on a subject that the nominee is passionate about, and the nominee is encouraged to impart their own perspectives regarding the subject matter to the community.
Distinguished Members’ webinars will be recorded for posterity, and be made available for viewing online on a separate webpage of the AFCC Alberta website, accessible to AFCC Alberta members only.
