Running for EDA President

It may sound intimidating to run for President of your local riding association in the Conservative Party of Canada. However, the reality is that in many ridings, nobody wants the job.  

It’s a volunteer position, without any pay. So in a huge number of ridings, perhaps as many as half, the existing President would gladly hand over the reins if he or she could find a single other person interested in taking over. They would view it as a relief to learn that another existing board member, or even a brand-new board member, would be willing to serve for a term. 

In conclusion, if you put your name forward to run for President, depending on your location, there’s a good chance you’ll win it.
