Our Society is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Potential directors are team players with a passion for our cause, commitment to our mandate and experience in one of the following areas:  finance, accounting, law, marketing, fund development, business, administration, technology or board governance. If you would be interested in joining the Board, please contact CHS.Governance@gmail.com for more information.


About the Board

Director roles are volunteer positions and usually require a minimum two-year term commitment as well as availability for approximately ten hours per month to attend meetings and work on various board subcommittees.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the governance and financial accountability of the organization. The Board sets strategic direction and budgets and provides oversight of the Executive Director. Additionally, Directors are expected to advocate for the Society within the community and to serve as ambassadors at its public events.
