Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers elected by the members at the Annual General Meeting. The Board is responsible for governing the Society, which includes: the Society's mission and strategic planning; policy development; stewardship of resources; and accountability to members, donors, and the public. The Executive Director and CEO, who is the senior staff person, reports directly to the Board.
Board members serve a three-year term, which may be followed by a second three-year term, after which a one-year leave is required. A few vacancies occur each year, since members' terms are staggered. Nominations are recommended to the membership by the Governance Committee of the Board.
