The Board is comprised of no less than twelve (12) and no more than fourteen (14) Directors as follows:

Term of Office

Municipal representatives serve a term of no more than four years to coincide with their respective term of office on Council. CAO’s serve a term of four years or as otherwise directed by their respective Council. Other Board Directors generally serve an initial term of two years or three years up to a maximum of 9 years. However, this may be varied from one to three years in order to stagger the terms of Directors so that the Board is replenished on a rolling basis.
