The Board of Directors (BoD) is made up entirely of volunteers. There are between six and ten seats on the Board, with ten members currently sitting. In addition to a President, a Vice President, a Secretary, and a Treasurer (all positions which are mandated), there is a Media officer and five Members-at-Large. We also have one or more student volunteers from Algonquin College. Terms are generally for two years and there is no limit on how many terms a Board member can sit. Election to the BoD is by majority vote at the Annual General Meeting, usually held in the late autumn of each year. Nominations can be put forward by any member in good standing for any other member who accepts the nomination.
The Board of Directors is responsible for the over-arching management of the FPRF, including the creation and implementation of a yearly work plan, organizing events for members and the public, and handling the financial aspects of the group.
If you would like more information on the Board of Directors, or to nominate somebody to the Board, please contact Robin Cunningham (firstname.lastname@example.org).
