This year we revised our Board organizational structure to provide clarity on roles and accountabilities for directors as a board member; and focus our efforts on programs and services we want to continue to drive. To view the proposed organizational structure, click here. Please note that the new organization and positions are subject to approval at the Annual General Assembly.

Chapter Chair*– Golden Horseshoe Chapter Chair, Durham Chapter Chair, Eastern Ontario Chapter Chair, Bruce Chapter Chair and New Brunswick Chapter Chair. (Please note, this election will be conducted exclusively with the chapter region members).
