The Board election date has been announced and the application process is now open for those interested in running for election to the 2020-2021 Board of Directors.
All registrants have been issued a notice from the College announcing that the election for the 2020-2021 Board of Directors will be held on November 2, 2020. This date was established following postponement of the original election date earlier this year due to the state of emergency declared by the provincial government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a result of changes to the College’s governance framework and election procedure adopted in the College’s By-Law No. 6, a new process will be in place for this year’s elections, including increased screening of applications and the elimination of electoral districts.
Registrants are asked to carefully consider the responsibilities, skills, and time commitment required to effectively fulfill a Director role before submitting their application. Prospective candidates are also required to have read the 2020 Director Profile, College By-Law No. 6, and Governance Manual prior to submitting their application via the OCP Recruitment Website.
Once an application has been submitted, candidates will be screened according to the process outlined in the Director Profile. The deadline for submitting an application is August 14, 2020.
TRANSITION TO VIRTUAL MEETINGS
In consideration of provincial directives and social distancing measures recommended by public health authorities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the College’s Board of Directors (Council) meetings are now being held via video and teleconference. Board meetings remain open to the public via virtual viewing options, with access information available in the Board meeting agenda.
