Call for nominations: Join CHIMA and the College’s board of directors

The Canadian College of Health Information Management and CHIMA, Canada’s health information management association Board of Directors have announced a call for nominations to join the board of directors.

In line with good governance, new directors are periodically nominated to refresh the Organization’s governance with new ideas and experiences. Therefore, the Board Nominations Committee is seeking nominations of qualified candidates to join this dynamic group of leaders to shape the health information profession nationally.

As a national, member-based organization, our goal is to ensure that the board of directors includes diverse members with experience in all regions of the country. While geography is one element of the diversity selection criteria, other factors are considered. A skills matrix is used to map the directors’ skills and attributes. It considers several categories, including values, representation, education, experience, and knowledge in areas such as finance, organizational governance, industry, strategy development, law, and human resources. This is crucial as we aim to ensure that the right people are around the table to represent our members’ views across Canada and inform our path forward.
