Professional Standards Committee
The Professional Standards Committee reviews trends and issues which arise as a result of complaints and create Rules, policies and best practices to proactively assist the membership to prevent complaints and insurance claims thereby protecting clients and the public.
The Professional Standards Committee has a due diligence and oversight role to be sure that the appropriate matters are being referred to the practice advisor and that matters are being dealt with. The Committee has the authority to recommend that a matter be referred to the Discipline Committee if issues of conduct unbecoming arise in the course of a practice review. However, this is certainly not the primary mandate of the professional standards committee.
