Board of Directors
The administration of the group will be carried out by a Board of Directors elected at the Annual General Meeting every five years. The Board will meet as necessary and not less than two times a year. The Board will consist of 5 members, and be composed of 4 officers and 1 Board member. Up to 2 additional members may be co-opted onto the Board at the discretion of the Board. The officers’ roles are as follows:
- President, who shall chair both General and Board meetings and represent ATINER-CANADA.
- Vice President, who will replace the president in his absence.
- Secretary, who shall be responsible for keeping records of members, the taking of minutes and the distribution of all papers
- Treasurer who shall be responsible for maintaining accounts and with the president will open an account in a Canadian bank.
All offices may be assisted by administration and secretarial support which can be provided strictly on a voluntary base. A board decision is required and the name of the assistant should be approved. In the event of an officer standing down during the year a replacement will be elected by the next General Meeting of members. Any Board member who does not attend two consecutive meetings without providing a valid reason will be contacted by a designated Board member and asked if they wish to resign. The Board meetings will be open to any member of ATINER-CANADA Group wishing to attend, who may speak, but not vote.
