The major project for the Governance Committee in 2021 was a complete review of our bylaws and governance process. It was the goal of the committee to have the new set of bylaws approved by the board of directors in time to be on the agenda for the 2021 Annual General Meeting. However, this review and rewriting of the bylaws turned out to be a huge, complicated process and has resulted in the new bylaws not being approved on time to go out with the agenda. Therefore, CQHA BY-LAWS #5 will be presented at the Annual General Meeting for discussion purposes only and placed on the agenda for a general meeting to be held during the Canadian AQHA Summit March 25-27.
In addition to the review of the bylaws, the Governance Committee agenda included:
– EC Code of Conduct and Ethics
– EC Code of Conduct – Conflict of Interest
– EC Abuse Policy
– EC Safe Sport Policy
– EC Concussion Policy
– EC Social Media Policy
With all these initiatives, the Governance Committee is setting the course for the CQHA to operate efficiently and successfully fulfill its mandate.
