At the annual general meeting (AGM) held in February, directors are elected to the Board for 2-year and 1-year terms. At the first Board meeting after the AGM, the elected directors decide and vote for fellow directors into the Executive Roles of President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary and will confirm their willingness to participate in a 2-year or 1-year term.
The Board of Directors meets every third Wednesday of the month – typically at one of our director’s business location or the Welcome Centre or another location selected and agreed upon by the Board. In the past several years these meetings have been held from 2-4pm, however the time slot is also decided by the incoming Board.
What Directors Do
In general, the Board of Directors has administrative power of the Chamber and is authorized to make decisions and representations on behalf of the Chamber to government, agencies and businesses. The Board also determines any bylaws, rules or regulations it feels are in the best interest of the Chamber and these are voted on/passed at the AGM in order to be adopted into practice.
The Board provides general direction to its Manager to carry out the day-to-day management operations of the Chamber in accordance with the Bylaws and applicable legislation.
At monthly meetings, directors are provided with an agenda, financial statements, the manager’s report and any other correspondence to the board or documentation for review.
