Prior to the AGM, the College is honoured to have Bradley Chisholm, a governance and leadership consultant to speak on professional regulation. Government policy changes, public expectations and perceptions, system failures and innovation are all impacting how we regulate and how we govern our regulatory bodies. This session will look at some of the trends and current events that are changing, or will likely change, the way that we regulate in the future with a focus on how we govern these organizations.
