The Board has no fewer than 8 and no more than 12 members elected after an interview process with the nominating committee. Terms are 4 years and are staggered so that no more than half of the members are being replaced or re-elected in any given year.

The Board meets four times throughout the year. In addition to attendance at meetings, members may be required to participate on committees or carry out other duties that are in line with their professional area of expertise.

Orientation and training can be provided to make sure all members are comfortable and knowledgeable in their role; previous board experience is an asset but not required.
