College Bylaw Amendment: Section 1-8

On April 1, 2016, the College Board approved amendments to section 1-8 of the Bylaws under the Health Professions Act, RSBC 1996, c.183.

Section 1-8 of the current Bylaws provides that only a registrant in good standing in the full, special, academic, or osteopathic classes of registration, who has a business address in the electoral district for which a vacancy on the Board exists, may stand for election to the Board. The proposed amendment to the Bylaws would limit elected registrants to those registrants who are not a director or an officer of another organization that would result in a conflict of interest to the College. The revised section of the Bylaws lists the types of organizations that exist in British Columbia where a conflict of interest may arise.
