January Virtual Discussion Event: Enhancing the Public Interest While Avoiding Dysfunction

Updated: Mar 29, 2023

REGISTER TODAY! CNAR invites you to join us on January 18th for our first Virtual Discussion event of 2023! During this presentation, "Enhancing the Public Interest While Avoiding Dysfunction: Public Members and Regulation of the Professions," our distinguished panel will explore whether recent trends to increase the number of public member representatives on regulatory bodies’ governing councils and committees enhance regulatory efficacy. This presentation was also featured at CNAR 2022 and inspired great interest and discussion among delegates.

Date: January 18, 2023

Time: 12:00 PM ET – 1:00 PM ET

Location: Zoom (link to be sent out prior to event)

  • Colleen Wetter, Secretary, CNAR Board of Directors

  • Greg Sim, Partner, Field Law

  • Joyce Johner, General Counsel, British Columbia College of Oral Health Professionals

  • Andréa Foti, Deputy Registrar, Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario

The panel will explore changes to public member involvement in their professions and whether those changes have had a measurable impact on regulation. In order for increased public participation in regulation to be beneficial, regulators need to orient and train both the public and the registrant members of their councils and committees to work collaboratively in the public interest. This session will describe stumbling blocks to effective co-regulation with public member representatives and how to overcome them.

This event is free to all CNAR Affiliates and $40 for non-Affiliates. All attendees must register by January 17th in order to access the discussion live.
