The Role of the CRDHA Council
Council serves as the governing body of the CRDHA and fulfills specific roles and responsibilities set out in the Health Professions Act (the Act). Council uses the Carver Policy Governance Model®, which enables the Council to focus on organizational purpose and direction. Council governs on behalf of its Owners and makes decisions in their best interest (Owners are all Albertans, including the subset of CRDHA members). Council uses a dynamic planning process to create specific Ends (desired results) with the emphasis on the future. Councillors have no individual authority. Collectively, they are responsible for connection with Owners to understand their values, perspectives, wants and needs. Council then develops written policies within which CRDHA and Council operates. Council follows a structured monitoring process for all work.
