The CGCA Advisory Board is comprised of senior members of the Canadian bar, representing both in-house and private practice lawyers. The CGCA is dedicated to bringing together both a geographically and gender diverse board, knowledgeable about the many talented in-house counsel across Canada. 

The board will meet on April 29th 2019 to review nominations in all 9 categories and will vote by secret ballot to determine the award recipients.

The Lifetime Achievement Award recipient will be announced publicly following the meeting, while the results of all other categories be revealed at the June 10th CGCA gala.
