A LETTER TO CPA ONTARIO MEMBERS FROM ALAN MAK, CHAIR OF COUNCIL, AND DAVE VERT, CHAIR OF THE GOVERNANCE & NOMINATING COMMITTEE

Greetings to all members. We have some exciting news to share with you. Nominations to Council are now open and this year we have two seats up for election. As we once again embark on Council elections, we would like to reflect on progress made over the last year.

2018 was a momentous year. Last year’s election process resulted in the election of five Council members who have added tremendous value: Daniela Carcasole, Anita Ferrari, Ian Jeffreys, Stephen McCaughey and Paulina Molnar.  

CPA Ontario protects the public interest by ensuring its members meet the highest standards of integrity and expertise. As unprecedented change continues to impact the profession, it is essential that Council ensures that it has the right skill sets to provide strategic guidance and capitalize on the CPA designation’s global mark of excellence.

The six priority skills and attributes that Council has identified for 2019 are: Academic Experience, Public Company/Risk Management, Learning and Innovation, Diversity, Effective Communicator/Contributor and Business Acumen. Further background on each of these skills can be found below.

The Notice of the Annual and General Meeting to be held September 25, 2019 can be found below. Note that the nomination process will close July 29, 2019.

For questions, please contact Associate General Counsel, Tom Litzgus by email or phone 416.969.4153.

We look forward to hearing from you and we encourage everyone who feels that they can make a contribution to Council and help us support CPA Ontario’s vision to seek a nomination.

Sincerely,

CONTINUING GOVERNANCE ENHANCEMENTS TO GUIDE MEMBERSHIP

CPA Ontario is continuing to build on its recent governance enhancements. The election process helps identify candidates with skills and attributes that will bring additional breadth and scope to Council’s current skill set and enhance its ability to provide strategic, forward-looking leadership and guidance. Those candidates whose skills and attributes align with these objectives will be identified by Council. We believe that by taking a considered and strategic approach to the Council election process, we are able to best protect the public interest.

There are six priority skills and attributes outlined below that are being sought in this year’s candidates that will support the strategic objectives of the organization. There are two seats that are available for election. Each elected Council member will hold a seat for three years.
