Code of Conduct Task Force

The OCA represents outstanding members of our profession. However, in rare instances, the standards of professionalism of one doesn’t reflect our members’ expectations. Therefore, the OCA established a new time-limited Code of Conduct Task Force to help advise the OCA Board of Directors on criteria and processes that codify the discipline and expulsion of OCA members in extraordinary circumstances.

The responsibilities of the Code of Conduct Task Force are to:

  • Recommend written policies and bylaw amendments related to standards of conduct and behaviour and actions that violate OCA policies and bylaws.
  • Evaluate the current member discipline and expulsion process and recommend improvements, including provisions for a progressive discipline approach.
  • Evaluate grounds for automatic termination of membership and recommend improvements.
  • Consult with members to ensure a common understanding of member discipline and expulsion.

Board Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee is a standing committee that reports to the Board. The role of the nominating committee is to help increase participation in the governance of our profession by ensuring there’s a cadre of members who are interested in running for election to your Board or working on committees.  The work of this Committee will not change the current nomination process.

The committee’s responsibilities are to help ensure:

  • Diversity in perspectives at the Board table, for example, cultural, geographic, age, gender, skills, and experiences.
  • Effective engagement with key stakeholders.
  • Insights to advance key strategic priorities for the profession.
