The Policy Forum consists of members of the Board of Directors, as well as the Chairs of the Chamber's Standing Policy Committees. The Vice-Chair of the Board acts as the forum Chair and is responsible for coordinating the activities of the committees.
The objectives of this committee are:
- to coordinate the activities of the other policy committees and to ensure their work aligns with the specific priorities and overall strategic directions identified by the Board of Directors
- to direct and approve, as necessary, policy positions on behalf of the Board
- to provide a dynamic interface between the Policy Committees and the Board allowing the organization to increase its policy-making capacity and advocacy efforts, and to ensure the various committees are organized around Board priorities
- to provide opportunity for committee members to increase their knowledge of the process, sharpen their skills, and achieve a greater degree of satisfaction with a well managed process.
