Update – February 7, 2019
As of today, the rules for the leadership convention, as determined by our Leadership Steering Committee, are available and can be viewed here. Moving forward, these rules shall govern all matters related to the selection of the next leader of our party. Prospective leadership candidates may also now officially request a Leadership Candidate Nomination Form from the NBLA. We know that Liberals are eager to become more involved in the process; more information will be coming soon about how members can vote, volunteer or attend the convention in Saint John in June!
Update – January 26, 2019
Following a meeting of our party’s board of directors on Saturday, I can now officially confirm that our party’s next leader will be chosen at a convention on Saturday, June 22nd 2019 in Saint John. More information about the leadership convention, and how to get involved will be available in the weeks to come. This will be an exciting weekend for our party, and I’m looking forward to joining Liberals from around the province as we enter a new chapter in our history together.
Update – December 4, 2018
On December 1, 2018, the New Brunswick Liberal Association (“NBLA”) Board of Directors met and approved the appointment of a Leadership Steering Committee as contemplated by the party’s constitution. The board asked that the committee convene as soon as possible to develop a recommendation as to the timing of a leadership convention. The leadership steering committee is to report back to the board by mid-January.
The board also voted that the leadership convention is to be held in Saint John.
As was the case with the most recent leadership convention, it is expected that telephone and online voting options will be made available for those unable to travel to the convention site. Further details will be made available once the leadership steering committee meets.
