The FVISS is a non-profit society composed of representatives from local stakeholder groups, including environmental stewardship groups, academic institutions, and government, who work to improve the way invasive species are managed in the Fraser Valley. Note that executive positions (Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Secretary) are appointed at the first Board of Directors meeting after the AGM and are not part of the nominations process.
DUTIES OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Board of Directors provides executive direction to the society by bringing forward ideas (ie. partnerships, projects, funding, society sustainability, etc) and helping the FVISS Executive Director and staff bring it to fruition. Directors must be members of the FVISS and agree to uphold the mandate of the society. Directors are volunteers and provide their time to the Board without financial or material compensation. Directors may be eligible for reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses (ie. mileage, parking, conference line charges). Directors are expected to attend Board meetings (usually held quarterly online or at locations throughout the region) and the annual general meeting, participate in email discussion and decision-making.
In-between annual AGMs, if you would like to join the FVISS Board of Directors - please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
