COC 2015 Independent Review

In 2015, the COC retained the services of Rubin Thomlinson LLP, led by Christine Thomlinson, to undertake an independent review of the COC following a complaint filed by an employee against the former President of the COC. Additionally, the COC retained governance expert Watson Inc. to work with Rubin Thomlinson to review specific questions related to the COC’s governance. The conclusion of these reviews included eight specific recommendations that were accepted and approved by the COC Board of Directors and which were fully implemented by the COC.
