On March 7, 2018, the chair presented to the board of directors by way of Outlook email messaging, a briefing note setting out the following:
- On December 8, 2017, the LAO Board approved a slate of proposed members for the 2019/20 board advisory committees which characterizes LAO’s commitment to greater diversity and a commitment to seeking a wider range of viewpoints within the advisory committee process.
- Subsequently, nine other candidates have expressed a willingness to serve on an advisory committee. These candidates bring a unique perspective and exceptional expertise and they further support diversity, representativeness and bilingualism. The proposed additional members, if approved, will serve on the Aboriginal Issues, Family Law and Prison Law advisory committees commencing with the fall 2018 round of board advisory committee meetings.
The recommendation to approve the proposal for additional advisory committee membership for the 2018‑2020 membership term is approved.
