The Board of Directors

Our volunteer Board Members are a dynamic group with diverse background experience in health, social services, community development and/or a love of our island communities. Besides monthly board meetings, they also participate in committees focused on Home Care, Children-Youth & Families, the Hornby Health Clinic and Finance. Our goal is to have 5 members on the Board from each island with terms of two years. We would love to hear from any community members interested in joining, especially those with experience delivering health and social services, and/or financial, legal or communications experience!
