About the Board
The affairs of the Association are managed by a Board of Directors of 17 RGDs as well as one Student RGD and one Provisional RGD. RGD Directors serve for two-year terms. The Board is responsible for long- and short-range planning, setting policy, monitoring operations, hiring the top staff person and ensuring that adequate governing documents are in place and regularly reviewed.
Directors have a fiduciary responsibility and must exercise the duties of their office honestly and in good faith and with the highest degree of care, diligence and skill. Directors are asked to familiarize themselves with the Act and Bylaws; attend regular meetings; serve on Committees; attend the Annual Meeting; stay informed of the Association’s activities and programs; uphold confidentiality and provide guidance and leadership in support of RGD’s mandate, goals and initiatives.
