Updated 2020 Gap Analysis

At its August 13, 2019 meeting, the Governance Committee updated the Skills Matrix to identify those Directors whose terms are expiring at the end of 2020 and may be renewed and the one Director who is facing his term limit at the end of 2020.  The Governance Committee also approved an updated skills assessment in accordance with its mandate.

As recommended by the Governance Committee, the OAC Board approved the Skills Matrix and resulting Gap Analysis at its meeting held on August 15, 2019. The Board also authorized the Governance Committee to update the Skills Matrix and Gap Analysis after the two new members of the Board were appointed effective January 1, 2020.

Following their appointments by the SC Board to the OAC Board, the new Directors provided information in a self-assessment as to how they would contribute to the Competency Framework established by the OAC Board. The Committee reviewed the self-assessment forms and based upon this information, the Gap Analysis was updated to identify significant gaps on the OAC Board in 2021.

Following questions and discussion, the Governance Committee approved the skills assessments of the new OAC Board members, and the updated Skills and Experience Matrix for 2021. The Committee also authorized and directed the OAC Board Chair and the Chair of the Governance Committee to communicate the updated Skills Matrix and resulting Gap Analysis to the SC Board for its use in the 2021 OAC Board appointment process.
