Yesterday, we closed a month-long outreach on proposed changes to CIRA’s governance process and structure. We are now in the process of reviewing the feedback we received. When we set out to renew CIRA’s governance structure and processes, we wanted to ensure our Members had the opportunity to ask questions and provide us with their ideas and opinions regarding the changes. To that end, I am happy to report that we received a fair amount of feedback.
In terms of next steps:
1. The CIRA Board will review the feedback and, if necessary, make updates to the proposed changes.
2. We anticipate that Members will receive the final proposed by-laws on or before August 18, 2012 to review.
3. Members would then have the opportunity to vote on the final proposed changes at our Annual General Meeting on September 18, 2012, in Ottawa.
I will be providing updates on the process on this blog as information becomes available.
I would take this opportunity to personally thank everyone who took the time to help us strengthen CIRA’s governance.
