OGS Governance Review Report

At its September 2012 meeting, the Board of Directors of OGS agreed to establish a committee to conduct a major review of our Society governance structure. The OGS Governance Review Committee of four qualified OGS members was struck and worked from October 2012 to March 2013 when they submitted their report and recommendations to the Board.

The Committee Report is available in its entirety for members to review in the Members Only section of the OGS website.

Your OGS Board has established a small task force to report back on April 16, 2013. The task force will plan and implement the roll out of the new governance structure including those changes requiring bylaw changes, those which might be undertaken relatively quickly and those that will be ongoing or long-term. 

OGS Members are encouraged to review the Governance Review Committee Report and forward anycomments and ideas for the task force to Society President, Shirley Sturdevant at president@ogs.on.ca.

Please pass along your initial ideas immediately and further thoughts later as they become apparent after further reading and consideration.  

Implementation of these recommendations will not happen overnight; nor will they happen without input and further assistance from you, the Members. Remember, this is our Society.

We are extremely grateful to OGS members Dwight Turner (Chair), Jean McNulty, Anna-Louise Richardson and Douglas McWhirter who undertook this review on our behalf.

Together, we are OGS!

Shirley L. Sturdevant, President
