The Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board (EMRB) met today to begin a CEO search process, following the announcement last month that CEO Malcolm Bruce has been tapped to be the first CEO for Edmonton Global, beginning July 1, 2018.

An RFP for an executive search firm was launched at the end of April. The Executive will name a search firm and then vet candidates, ultimately presenting its top two choices, and a recommendation, to the full Board for approval as soon as possible. As no date has been set for the hiring, the Executive Committee will also determine the Interim CEO cover-off. 

The Board agenda also included:
  • A presentation of the new EMRGIS website that will track Key Performance Indicators(KPIs) for the new Growth Plan
  • An update from the RAMP (Regional Agriculture Master Plan) Task Force from Chair Mayor Rod Shaigec - see webpage here
  • An update on the first meeting of the new MRSP (Metropolitan Region Servicing Plan) Task Force from Chair Mayor Ray Ralph - see webpage here
  • A notice of motion from the City of Edmonton: Re developing criteria for evaluation of REF applications

The Board is scheduled to meet every second month. 2018 Board Meeting Briefs to date:
