Executive to approve disclosure forms
NTI has introduced a conflict of interest policy and will require all directors to publicly disclose assets and liabilities worth more than $10,000 and any business in which they, or those living with them, have ownership.
The forms distributed to the NTI executive members this week are similar to forms that MLAs must complete under the Integrity Act.
NTI’s conflict of interest policy has been a work in progress for the past year, but with the release of the statements for final approval, the organization seems close to its goal of establishing standards for accountability among elected officials.
No deadline has been set for executive members to complete the forms, but NTI lawyer Steven Foulds expected it to happen within the next few months, certainly by the end of the year.
