Approved

Clear measurements help administration understand the intended outcomes of the goals in the Strategic Plan. They also help Council monitor and measure whether the goals are achieved.

Bylaw 4 deals with Council members ceasing to hold office. The addition is that, if a regulated member of Council misses three Council meetings in a year, they automatically cease to be a Council member. Though this is currently addressed in policy, we moved it into the Bylaws.

  • transitioning to the new structure of the Governance Committee and the Finance, Risk Management and Audit Committee by November 30, 2024

At their September meeting, Council approved changes to GP4.2 Statutory/Regulatory and Governance Committees in the Governance Policies. Those changes allow for the committees to be made up of mostly Council members. They are most familiar with the work Council is currently doing and can use that awareness to keep the committees working effectively in support of Council.

A gradual change will allow for overlap to support knowledge transfer from current committee members to the Council members who are joining the committee.
