To join the Board you need to become a member in good standing (click here for the membership application form) and fill in an application to join the Board. The nominating committee will then set up a time to meet with you, discuss your interest and what you will bring to the Board. We will also be able to answer any questions and set up a meeting with the CEO for more details on the day to day running of the Society. The nominating committee will then make a recommendation to the Board at which time you will come in and meet everyone and decide if you are interested in joining!
