Board Committees

The Board of Directors believes that a fundamental principle of sound governance is ensuring that members of its Board have equal access to all information, discussion and options requiring Board approval and therefore takes a minimalistic approach to the use of committees to preserve the wholeness of the Board’s job.

To ensure compliance with governing legislation, the following Board committees have been appointed:

The purpose of the Audit Committee is to ensure an independent review of the Credit Union’s operations on areas deemed necessary to maintain the integrity of financial data, adequacy of internal controls, and adherence to requirements of The Credit Union Act, 1998, The Credit Union Regulations, 1999, and the Standards of Sound Business Practice. All Directors serve on the committee which meets during regular board meetings.
The Conduct Review Committee ensures that Diamond North Credit Union acts with the full integrity and objectivity of its directors and employees by having in place policies, processes and practices that protect people and the organization from claims and from the perception of unfair benefit or conflict of interest. All directors serve on the Conduct Review Committee which meets during regular Board meetings.
The Elections Committee oversees the nomination and election process for the election of Credit Union directors. The committee is comprised of each member of the Board not eligible for re-election in the next Board election cycle. The minutes of its meetings are submitted to the Board and it reports to the Board during regular Board meetings.
