Board of Directors
The Board is governed by terms of reference with clearly defined scope, authority, duties and responsibilities, including matters pertaining to succession planning, composition and conduct of meetings. The Board strives to ensure that Board members, as a group, have core competencies in areas such as accounting and finance, business and general management, communications, healthcare, human resource, law, medicine, strategic planning and technology and that it incorporates a degree of diversity.
The Board believes that there should be a good balance between board size, gender mix and diversity of expertise so that the Board will be able to offer objective and quality viewpoints to ensure NKF is well governed and managed effectively. The selection and appointment of Board members are overseen by the Nomination Committee based on the terms of reference established, including the size of the Board and the term limits. All Board members are volunteers and are not remunerated. In addition, Board evaluation is carried out annually for assessment of its effectiveness and to drive improvement, as appropriate.
