Join our Policy Governance Board of Directors
Those who wish to join our Policy Governance Board of Directors:
To express your interest, please complete the Application for nomination to the Board of Directors. Applicants must have an interest in leading and governing rather than being involved in how the Society operates on a day-to-day basis. If you are a visionary with a positive attitude, open to opportunity, a team player, and interested in making our community a better place through thoughtful consideration of and constructive contribution to board discussions, our Nominating Committee wants to hear from you.
Selected applicants will be interviewed and assessed on the basis of past governance experiences, interests in health care, and attributes required by the Board to fulfill its role over the next several years.
We follow a policy governance model designed to empower us to fulfill our obligation of accountability to our community. This allows us to focus on larger issues and to set and maintain a framework of delegation and internal control that ensures compliance with the Society’s commitment to service.
Successful nomination and subsequent election would result in a one-year term, with eligibility to stand for re-election for a further six one-year terms. Applications are invited throughout the year; however, a March submission deadline is generally published to allow for the necessary interview and selection processes to occur prior to the Annual General Meeting which typically occurs in April. All nominations presented at the Annual General Meeting must come through our Nominating Committee. As there is an open invitation for potential candidates, nominations from the floor at the Annual General Meetings are not permitted.
Your application or questions can be submitted by email, mail or hand delivery.
