Delegation Protocol

Those persons appearing before the Regional Board as a delegation should be aware of the following matters of protocol:

  • The Chair should be addressed as "Mr./Madam Chairman".
  • Directors should be addressed as "Director <......>".
  • Staff should be addressed either by title such as, "Administration Director" or by name such as, "Ms. Batten".
  • Responses to the Regional Board or staff should be addressed through the Chairman.

The opportunity to appear as a delegation is at the privilege of the Regional Board, therefore delegations are encouraged to be succinct and efficient in their presentations. Upon completion of your presentation, the Regional Board Directors may ask questions if they feel clarification is required.
