Local Health Integration Networks will be governed by an appointed Board of Directors and bound by accountability agreements with the Ministry. Each Board member is appointed by an Order-in-Council. Board members are selected using a merit-based process, with all candidates assessed for the fit between skills and abilities of the prospective appointee and the needs of each Local Health Integration Network. The appointment process is transparent and consistent - with clear and understandable guidelines applied consistently to all Board member appointments.
Board members are expected to possess relevant expertise, experience, leadership skills, and have an understanding of local health issues, needs and priorities. The Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network Board reached its full complement of nine members in June 2006. Succeeding board membership will entail an ongoing community processes led by the Local Health Integration Network board, to help identify and recommend potential board candidates.
