  1. Section  2:1C Governance Style of the Board and TOR Procedural Policy
    Briefing Note: Combines the Governance Style of the Board policy (2:1C) and the Terms of Reference: Procedural Policy of the Board. 2:1C becomes the preamble to the procedural policy. The policy is renamed to "Board Procedural Policy." Consider changing this from a TOR to policy 2:1C. Besides changes to grammar and punctuation, changes were made to better define quorum, rules regarding virtual participation in meetings, and changes to voting on motions made by email. 

  2. Section 2:1E Executive Committee and 2:1O Election of Executive Committee
    Briefing Note: Combines 2:1E Executive Committee and 2:1O Election of Executive Committee under one policy called "Executive Committee." Besides grammar and punctuation, clarity was provided on the population used to determine auto-seats and what happens when an auto-seat is vacated prematurely. Added a requirement to obtain legal counsel on the dismissal of an ED (for compliance with insurance).

  3. Section 4:1A Collection Development 
    Briefing Note: This came up during the regular review. We tightened the language and simplified it for clarity.


  1. Section Sec 2:1O
    Briefing Note: Combine with Sec 2:1E

  2. Section Sec 2:1C
    Briefing Note: Combine with TOR Procedural Policy
