Call for Volunteers!
At the beginning of each Fall, the standing committees of the College are tasked with reviewing their 'Procedures' or 'Rules' document, the Terms of Reference of their committee and to set/review policies for conduction of the business of each committee. Without volunteers, we cannot efficiently conduct the regulatory procedures in our mandate to protect the Public. Volunteers are awarded up to 10 CEU's per year for giving of their time and expertise.
The following committees are in need of volunteers: Professional Practice Committee, Complaints Committee, Discipline Committee and the Fitness to Practice Committee. Once the documents and policies have been reviewed annually, the Complaints, Discipline and Fitness to Practice committees are in a holding pattern to be called upon in the event of a complaint, which might be then referred to either the Discipline or Fitness to Practice if a Professional Misconduct was found to have occurred. Members of these committee would be called upon to act on a panel in response to a complaint received by the College.
The Professional Practice committee has an interesting and challenging year ahead. CVRP Director, Sue Allardyce has graciously accepted the appointment and will be taking on the position of Chair. Tasks for this pivotal committee include reviewing and revising the CVRP Scope of Practice to include the new CCVE credential and a separate document for Standards of Practice, which will more clearly define the skills and knowledge accepted for competent VR and VE practice. The PP committee will be working closely with the CCVE Standards of Practice sub-committee to assist in the development of the CCVE Standards.
Volunteers are invited to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred committee choice and personal contact information as soon as possible. Interested volunteers will be contacted directly by a CVRP Administrator and/or the Chair of the assigned committee with a tentative meeting schedule. We thank you in advance for your involvement.
