Board of Directors


The role of the Board or Directors is to provide leadership and oversight of the activities of the Society. In both areas it will strive to represent the interests of members and the broader community. The work of the board requires balance of asking big questions, exploring possibilities, engaging in real dialogue, solving problems and offering direction.

In providing leadership, the Board will actively consult with others inside and outside the organization and, in providing insight, will ensure broad organizational accountability, transparency and active and meaningful external communications.

In providing leadership the Board will work with the General Manager in engaging external stakeholders in looking towards the future, reviewing the organization’s mission and objectives, identifying outcomes the organization is seeking and the strategies it will use to achieve them.

In providing oversight the Board will rely on assessing organizational performance in relation to goals and adherence to budget. The Board will ensure, through the creation of policies, that the Society adheres to sound financial management, personnel and service practices. The board will rely on the systematic review of organizational activities through the implementation of policies, rather than by examining or advising on day-to day decisions.

The board will take responsibility for its own management, continuity and renewal. It will ensure effective board meeting practices, appropriate director conduct, ongoing board education, and continued attention to the recruitment of new board members and member community stakeholders possessing skills of benefit to the Society.
