Registration Revoked

On April 10, 2018, the NANB Discipline Committee met to consider a complaint lodged against Sylvia Brigitte Smith, registration number 022954. The member was not present at the Discipline Committee hearing even though a notice of hearing was duly sent on February 23, 2018 to the member’s last known address. The Committee proceeded to consider the evidence received in accordance with By-law 11.17D which provides that:

It is the duty of the member against whom a complaint is made to appear at all hearings but in the event of
non-attendance the Committee upon proof of mailing of notice of such hearing may proceed in the same way
as though the member were in attendance.

Based on the findings, and according to By-law 11.17D, the Discipline Committee determined that the member had a duty to attend the hearing and the Committee had the authority to make an order in her absence and therefore revoked the member’s registration. The member shall not be eligible to apply for reinstatement of registration before one (1) year of the date of the Order.
