Our Board and Volunteer Committees
Our volunteer board members have a wide range of experience that helps them set direction and standards for GCF. They oversee our operations with Guelph and Wellington County interests in mind. This group is made up of community volunteers with expertise in specific sectors and different lived experiences. Our directors also serve on several committees that provide support to GCF staff and the board on key areas of operation. Our Board members are appointed by the Nominating Committee, and serve a three-year term and are eligible to serve a maximum of three terms. Terms commence and terminate on the date of GCF’s annual meeting which is typically held late spring. The Board as a whole elects a chair, and vice chair, and each Board member serves as a member of one or more of GCF’s committees.
