The board of directors is now comprised of a team of people with a variety of backgrounds; community leaders who have specialist knowledge in community engagement, finance, legal, HR, sponsorship, health & wellness, operations, marketing, technology, risk management and /or governance. The inaugural board of directors was appointed in September of 2015.
