Update on KRA 1, Financial Health

The board established a preliminary business plan for 2016-17. Many of the activities specified in that business plan focused on securing agreement and/or a mandate to move forward in areas of importance to the profession. The Amending Agreement created a joint mandate and established the mechanism to advance in many of the areas identified by the board in its original plan. As a result, implementation of the activities outlined in the Amending Agreement became a key focus for second part of the year.
