In a bulletin published February 12, the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (the MFDA) announced that it was establishing a task force to review issues respecting its governance, which emanated from its annual general meeting of members held in December 2008. The issues to be reviewed include the process for nominating board members, the process for making and amending by-laws and rules, the failure to pass a by-law respecting the definition of "Public Director" and the terms of office for directors, and the failure to elect three proposed Public Directors. The MFDA stated that it is determined to fully review the governance issues and conduct a "robust" consultation process.
