College of Applied Biologists Committee & Task Force Openings
A great way to earn Continuing Professional Development Points: Service to the College can be used towards CPD points requirements, depending on the task force or committee.
For a listing of terms of reference and positions profiles for College working bodies, please review the College Board, Statutory Committees, and Current Working Bodies document library.
The Professional Governance Act has specific requirements for “statutory committees.” That is, the five committees that allow the College to meet its mandate to protect the public interest under the PGA. These five committees are:
- Credentials Committee
- Audit and Practice Review Committee
- Investigations Committee
- Discipline Committee
- Nomination Committee
In order to deliberate on other elements of the PGA, the College may constitute task forces. These working bodies have a specific task in their mandates and a stated deadline by which time the task should be completed. The College also has several Working Groups, such as the Editorial Board, which perform regular tasks over the course of the year.
Because the College is committed to bringing diverse backgrounds and expertise to College activities, we invite all registrants to consider applying for open volunteer positions. Please review the positions available below along with their respective terms of reference.
To apply, please fill out the volunteer application webform below. If you are applying for a chair position, please note that applicants for chairs of the statutory committees listed above must be qualified by the Nominations Committee using the same merit-based process as nominees for College Council.
