2016/2017 OPPI Council photo


Strategic thinking is a critical component of sound governance. The Ontario Professional Planners Institute strives to demonstrate excellence in its governance. The priority of Council is to guide the organization through policy decisions and strategic directions. As a non-profit organization, OPPI’s activities and progress are overseen by a group of volunteers who are accountable for all its activities and accomplishments: the board of directors or Council.

Given the strategic goal of moving towards professional regulation, OPPI’s structure demonstrates a commitment to excellence in governance, public accountability and practitioner competence. The governing body is comprised of nine to eleven members- including President, Secretary/Treasurer, President-Elect and one voting public member- motivated individuals drawn from diverse backgrounds, who work together effectively with professional acumen, foresight and creativity. 

OPPI Council meets four times a year. Agendas and minutes are available, upon request to the OPPI office
