Elyse and Lonny will be presenting a workshop for regulators, “Good governance begins at home”
Regulators are responsible for ensuring the good governance of professionals by setting the standards for professional activities, and ensuring or enforcing compliance. However, like any organization, preserving and strengthening member and stakeholder confidence starts with the Board (or Council). Part of being an effective regulator therefore includes providing appropriate training and resources to Board members and being able to avoid or mitigate conflicts and governance issues when they arise. This workshop will deal with some hot button issues facing Boards and address the intricacies and complexities of governance issues where that Board is a professional regulator. Participants will gain practical strategies for dealing with issues such as:
- Avoiding and addressing Board Member conflicts of interest
- Best practices for dealing with complaints against Board Members
- Increasing Board diversity for Boards created by legislation
- Dealing with the difficult Board Member – CNAR 2
Lonny will be presenting a “PechaKucha” (Japanese word for conversation) as part of the finale of the 2021 Virtual Conference on October 21st on the topic “Where Credibility Assessments Go Wrong: Lessons from the Case Law”.
A PechaKucha presentation is a format consisting of 20 chosen images, each for 20 seconds. In 400 seconds, Lonny will review the lessons from the case law for decision makers when assessing credibility. PechaKucha means “chit chat” in Japanese.
