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.
We welcome new ideas, new perspectives, and new relationships that are in-line with our mandate and goals of working towards minimizing the negative impacts of invasive species in the Fraser Valley!
Directors must be members of the FVISS and agree to uphold the mandate of the society. Directors are volunteers and 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.
Do you share our mandate and goals? Do you want to help guide our organization? Are there ideas you think the FVISS should work towards? We want to know!
