Our Board of Directors

The Board of Directors at WeCONNECT

The Board of Directors is elected by the general membership at the annual general meeting each year. Board members serve a one-year term.

Directors are responsible for the functions and activities of WeCONNECT.

It is their role to ensure WeCONNECT operates in such a manner that it maintains its status as a registered society.

The Board as a whole is accountable for the finances, legalities, planning and policy decisions of WeCONNECT.

The Board’s role and function is defined by the Constitution and By-Laws of the Society which are approved by the general membership of the Society.
