 The Opportunity: Nominating Committee Members for College of Nurses of Ontario


The College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO), a visionary leader in regulatory governance, is looking for volunteers to serve on its inaugural Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee will support CNO in advancing competency-based governance, a key component of CNO’s vision for governance[1] that promotes public trust.

You are a seasoned leader with experience in decision-making, change management and protecting the public. In addition to those attributes, we are looking for at least one person with a strong background in human resources, particularly in candidate recruitment,  assessment, and selection.  We are also looking for someone experienced in industrial-organizational psychology. 

Governance certification or board level experience in a regulatory and / or non-profit environment rounds out your background. A skilled communicator with unquestionable integrity, you possess strong professional judgement and systems level thinking.

If this sounds like you, CNO invites you to apply to serve as a member of its Nominating Committee. The CNO is actively searching for two members of the public and two members of CNO’s Council (one who is a nurse and one member of the public).

As a member of the Nominating Committee, you will be part of a team that assists the Board (Council) in ensuring CNO’s committees have the competencies and attributes (the experience, knowledge, skills, and character) to enable them to fulfil their roles. Among its duties, the Nominating Committee recommends candidates for appointment or re-appointment to CNO’s committees. Members of the inaugural Nominating Committee will set the stage for future success and making recommendations for future improvement. Volunteers receive a nominal honorarium.
