Committees and forums
Volunteers from the professional orders ensure the democratic functioning of the Québec Interprofessional Council and are active in its committees and forums.
Four standing committee created by the general meeting—Governance and Ethics Committee, Planning Committee, Finance and Audit Committee, and Legislation Committee—help the Executive Committee carry out some of their functions and study various issues. The Board of Directors may also create ad hoc committees to consider specific issues.
In addition, the general meeting has created six forums that serve as discussion forums for people holding the same function or who are responsible for the same file within the professional orders. They are: the forum of the orders’ executive directors, the syndics forum, the forum of disciplinary council secretaries, the professional inspection forum, the training forum and the communications forum.
The CIQ organizes training sessions, study days, and other activities to allow members in each of the forums share their expertise and stay abreast of the latest developments in the professional system.
