Updated: Mar 31

Regulatory Bodies vs. Professional Association Mandates: How do they differ? How can both work together to serve the public interest?

Date: April 3rd, 2023

Time: 12:00 PM ET – 1:00 PM ET

Location: Zoom (link to be sent out on March 30th)

Pricing: FREE for Affiliates; $40 for non-Affiliates

Many regulators have a single focus: to regulate professions in the public interest; however, some continue to have dual regulatory and professional association mandates.

Join us on April 3rd as we explore how regulatory and association mandates differ; the grey areas in between; and the impact when serving the public interest.

Topic areas for discussion may include:

  • Governance & Culture (How can Board members be supported in their understanding of the regulatory mandate? How does this differ from professional interest?)

  • Awareness & Identity (How do registrants develop a relationship with their regulator and better understand their identity as regulated professionals?)

  • Collaboration (How can regulators and associations work together to serve the public interest?)

Facilitated by Claude Balthazard, Registrar and VP Regulation, Human Resources Professional Association, our featured panel for this event includes:

  • Jody-Lee Farrah, Executive Director & Registrar, Alberta College of Social Workers

  • Joy Peacock, CEO & Registrar, College of Registered Nurses of Alberta

  • Richard Spelliscy, Registrar & CEO, College of Alberta Psychologists

This event is free to all CNAR Affiliates and $40 for non-Affiliates. All attendees must register by March 31st in order to access the discussion live.
