The Governance Committee, chaired by Barbara Brink, plays a vital role in the operation of the West Vancouver Community Centres Society. The purpose of the Committee is to assist the Board in ensuring that the overall business, stewardship, and governance responsibilities of the Board are conducted efficiently and effectively. The Governance Committee is concerned with Society compliance with the Society Act, Board performance and accountability, Board organization, and the retention of quality directors and appointed officials to meet policy, fiduciary and fundraising obligations.
In the coming year, the Governance Committee is focused on specific projects including:
• Ensuring the Society is compliant with the regulatory requirements of the Society Act
• Further refining the Director’s orientation and development program
• Ensuring the Directors Manual is current and complete
• Researching Society membership policy options and recommending changes as required
The West Vancouver Community Centre is operated under an innovative community governance partnership between the District of West Vancouver and the West Vancouver Community Centres Society, a registered charitable Society.
