On November 12th the CFPC held its Annual Meeting of Members (AMM) during FMF. We are pleased to announce that the proposal for the new national governance structure of the College was approved by CFPC members. This will permit the College to transition to a smaller, skills-based Board reflective of the membership while providing continued accountability, timely and effective governance, and enhanced opportunities for all stakeholders to engage with the Board.
College members also voted and approved the CFPC’s new 11-member National Board of Directors for 2015–2016:
Jennifer Hall, MD, CCFP, FCFP, President
Garey Mazowita, MD, CCFP, FCFP, Past-President
