The  Board of Directors are volunteers who are elected by the members to manage the Association and promote its financial health and growth.  Directors are elected for a one year term and may stand for re-election. Past Commodore, Jennifer Handley [7] continues as an ex-officio member of the Board with voice but no vote.

Purpose

The Board of Directors represents the interests of all members of BCA and ensures that decisions are in accordance with the purpose of the Association and reflect BCA’s mission, vision and values.  The Board of Directors provide guidance, direction and financial authority to those Watchkeepers and/or staff involved in the running of the association and ensure that services and activities provided to members support the purpose of the association.  The Board meets as required, usually nine times, but no less than five times a year.  Meetings are held by online conference call;  an annual face-to-face strategic planning session usually occurs in March.

Authority, Accountability and Reporting

The Board of Directors:

The Board of Directors appreciates the tremendous support shown by BCA members.  Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
