board of directors |

The members of the CNVC Board of Directors govern the organization by articulating the vision, mission and aims of CNVC. They ensure its financial and legal integrity and establish board policies, strategies and objectives, including approving policies proposed by the Administrative Team and others. They also assign priorities and ensure the organization’s capacity to carry out programs by regularly reviewing its work. The Board of Directors provides continuity for the organization and also represents the organization’s point of view through interpretation of its products and services and through advocating for them.
