Role Of The Board
The Board of Directors is elected from the membership for a two year term of office at the Annual General Meeting held every year at the end of June. The Board is a decision-making entity, with jurisdiction over agency planning and policy. The Board has fiscal and legal responsibility for the agency. It is the goal of the agency to have an active, visionary board representing a wide variety of interests and knowledge.
The Nominating Committee is a standing committee of the Board appointed following the Annual General Meeting each year. The committee receives names of anyone who might be interested in joining the Board. The Nominating Committee also recommends directors for the executive office. Directors may hold executive office for two years or longer. The Board meets monthly in the evening.
Daily operational decisions are the responsibility of the Executive Director, who reports to the Board.

The Comox Valley Child Development Association provides services to children, youth and adults with diverse abilities and their families. Our primary location is in Courtenay at the corner of Third Street and Cliffe Avenue, but our work also takes us into schools, homes, and other parts of the community.
All of the services at the CVCDA are family centred. This means we recognize that families know their children best and play the most important role in their life. We support families to make decisions about their child’s services; we respect individual families’ values, beliefs, and cultural backgrounds. At the CVCDA, families are equal partners in the provision of services.
