Now that we have explored board member appointments at the federal level, this session will examine what Provincial and Territorial Crown Chairs need to keep in mind when compiling their recommendations for open board member positions.

  • Outlining what the Privy Council considers when making board member appointments
  • Understanding the favored qualities of a board member to ensure the right candidates are sought out
  • Devising a plan with current Board members to identify gaps
  • Understanding the Chair’s crucial role as the sole representative of the Crown who is able to provide recommendations
    • Reviewing potential biases that can alter recommendations and how to avoid them
