Congratulations to Judy Mord on being appointed to CRPO Council to fill the vacancy in District 2 – North. This position on Council became available in September 2019 when the elected registrant resigned from Council with less than 12 months remaining on their term. Rather than hosting a by-election, Council directed the Registrar to fill the vacancy by appointment.
Congratulations to Judy and thank you to all registrants who took the time to speak with staff and put their names forward for consideration.
As part of the appointment process, CRPO staff provided information to registrants who participated in three video webinars that were held to discuss practice issues in the northern district. A specific call out was also made to registrants in District 2 inviting them to submit their resume for consideration for the appointment. Registrants who submitted a resume were also asked to complete a brief competency assessment survey. This marks the first time the CRPO has made an appointment to Council using the competency assessment tool. We hope to use the tool in the future for competency-based appointments.
