Our board structure

Our board is made up of a team of volunteer directors, each with a specialized portfolio. They are responsible for the development, delivery, and governance of all chapter activities.  

The directors are led by an executive board consisting of our president, vice president, past president, executive administrator and treasurer. We work together on the strategic plan and direction for the chapter under the guidance of our association bylaws, which are approved by the IABC head office. 

Each portfolio director has a team of volunteers to support their work.
