Optometry Examining Board of Canada
The Client: Optometry Examining Board of Canada (OEBC)
The Need: OEBC is the national non-profit organization responsible for developing and administering the entry to practice exam for optometrists in Canada. In 2018 OEBC identified a need to renew its governance model to better meet the needs of the organization, improve effectiveness and focus on the responsibilities of the board.
The Solution: Michelle facilitated a process with the board of directors to review its needs and responsibilities, and the Board selected to adopt a Policy Governance model to govern their organization. Michelle assisted the board in the development of their policy manual, provided tools and coaching to assist with the transition to the new model and provided coaching to the CEO on creating effective monitoring reports under the model. Support for a subsequent revision to the by-laws was also provided.
The Result: OEBC has successfully transitioned to a Policy Governance governance model and is completing a revision of their by-laws.
