New Council Meets Dec 11th

Public Members Now Appointed

Now that we have confirmation of six new public Members of Council appointed by the Ontario Government, CRPO`s new Council is ready to roll up its sleeves and get down to business.

Professional Members of Council were elected in October by a vote of the membership. Now we have eight elected and six appointed Council Members, and one vacant seat that will require a by-election in coming months. To review Council Member biographies or brief candidate statements (the latter posted for election purposes), click here.  [Note: candidate statements will be replaced with biographies shortly.]

The first meeting of Council will include orientation sessions on CRPO’s past and future activities, and regulatory governance, as well as appointment of committees and committee chairs, and election of the Executive Committee. For more information about the election process for the Executive see CRPO’s By-laws, Schedule 1 (p. 49). An important aspect of this process is that Executive Committee must be composed of three elected Members of Council and two public (appointed) Members.
