Revision to the Council President’s Job Description
Council amended the Council President’s job description to allow both professional and public members of Council to run for President.
The President is ultimately responsible for the fulfillment of the vision, mission, guiding principles and strategic priorities of the Council. Public participation and involvement in the decision-making processes of Council is critical to the College’s duty of regulating the profession of midwifery in the public interest.
