Nominations are now open to join the CAPS Ontario Board – We want YOU! And we need your opinion.

CAPS Ontario is currently looking for two (2) members to join the Board. Here’s the nomination package.

Call for Nominations and Nomination Form 2021 -

If you or someone you know might be interested in joining our group – we’d be happy to hear from you. Download the form, fill it out and submit to Gary Killops at before February 7th, 2021. We need at least ONE accredited sommelier. We are allowed to have three non-sommelier board members and we have one position open here as well. You must be an accredited sommelier or an associate member in good standing with CAPS to be considered.

CAPS – in progress v6

We also have taken some time to rework some of our bylaws. If you are an accredited sommelier and member  you are being asked to approve the revised bylaws. Please review the attached document. The items in red ink are the changes we need your approval to enact. As a board, we approved the items in green ink in December 2020.

The short version of the red changes is that our three, incredibly hard-working and talented non-sommelier board members can vote during our regular board meetings but can not vote at the AGM. We don’t think that this is fair and would like you to assist us in approving this change.

We’ll be running the AGM on a virtual platform this year. If you are already a CAPS Ontario Accredited Sommelier Member – please await further instructions. If you need to renew – you can do that under the Membership tab.

See you on March 23rd. And as always – if you have questions – please email Lynn at
