Executive Committee Code of Conduct
The Barrhaven Girls Basketball Association was incorporated in 2002 under the Canada Corporations Act and in 2010 became the Nepean Basketball Association, which was continued in 2014 by articles of continuance under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (NFP Act).
The Executive Committee is the board of directors of the Association, and is answerable to the membership. NBBA directors are required by law to comply with the NFP Act and its regulations, and with the articles of continuance and NBBA by-laws that have been enacted under the NFP Act. Directors are required to exercise a level of care and diligence, and to act honestly, in good faith, and in the best interests of the Association, avoiding conflicts of interest.
Other conduct of the board that is required for effective governance includes
- steering the NBBA towards its 5-year vision, and guiding strategic planning
- being transparent, including communications to members and making information available
- developing appropriate structures
- maintaining fiscal responsibility
- ensuring that an effective management team is in place
- implementing assessment and control systems
- planning for the succession and diversity of the board.
The NBBA is expected to adhere to the OBA Conduct Policy for Member Clubs, and the Executive Committee is guided by the conduct that the OBA requires of its board of directors.
