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 in September. 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.

Annual General Meeting

This year’s AGM will be held on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 at 5pm in our Family Place (lower level of main CVCDA Building). Additionally, the meeting can also streamed by request.

Please email cindy@cvcda.ca for more information.
