Good morning Ross, and All,
As you know, I have raised the issue of formalizing our internal
processes around Conflicts / Statements of Interest at two of our
recent Council meetings.
Your up-date posting today, (together with the recent ones from Bruce,
Robin and Brett, which were similar in nature in that they, too,
provided updates) could serve as the model we are looking for.
Instead of mandating that we must provide updates quarterly or
annually, or according some other set time frame, I think this idea of
simply updating one's statement as warranted is an approach we should
It is simple, it eliminates the need to establish a schedule and issue
reminders, and most importantly, it reflects the rapidly changing
nature of the world that we work in; More and more, partnerships and
alliances are short-term and project-specific.
So, I propose that we formalize some version of "updates as
appropriate" as part Council's approach to eliciting and maintaining
current Statements of Interest.
