President's Working Groups to tackle 2020 challenges
Publish date: Wednesday, February 12, 2020 update
President Dave Bulmer has recently created several new President’s Working Groups to address issues relevant in AMAPCEO in 2020.
The new working groups will focus on:
An Investment Strategy Review and an Ethical Investment Assessment
AMAPCEO’s investment strategy is due for review, having last been updated about a decade ago. With environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting becoming mainstream in the investment world, AMAPCEO will conduct a parallel ESG assessment through an ethical lens.
An exploration of a Bursary Program
Most unions operate a bursary program of some sort either for their members or relatives, and with that suggestion being made to the Board, it has been deemed it worthy of investigation.
Drafting a new By-law for the Board Compensation Processes
Lastly, with the Board Compensation Committee’s work having been completed in 2018 and 2019, the Delegates directed the Board to draft a new By-law entitled: Board Compensation Process that would clearly define the Annual Delegates' Conference's decisions to date and identify and detail the end to end process that will cyclically occur every few years.
Working Groups are typically chaired by an Executive Officer (President, Vice-President, Secretary or Treasurer) with committee composition including two to three additional District Directors plus senior management and/or specialist staff members as required.
In all of these instances, working groups will return their research, options, recommendations or drafts to the Board for its greater input before each item goes forward to the Annual Delegates' Conference, in late 2020, for Delegate consideration and approval if applicable.
