The Premier and members of the Board also discussed digital integration of the Board’s contributor payments to strengthen the efficiency of the compliance arm of the organization. Commenting on the meeting the Premier stated, “This initial meeting with the NIB was a very productive one. I have gained insight into some of the critical functions of the Board and briefly discussed plans to increase efficiency and performance across the organization.
