Board of Directors

The elected Board of Directors governs the Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association. CIWA’s Board is composed of not less than nine (9) and not more than fifteen (15) full Board members. A minimum of 2/3 of the Board of Directors must be immigrants to Canada. The Chief Executive Officer attends all Board meetings but does not vote and acts as an advisor to the Board and all Board committees. The Board employs consensus-based decision-making. In the past year, the Board has updated its policies, created efficient operating procedures, and strengthened the governance framework for the organization.

The Board holds the Annual General Meeting of CIWA in June of each year. To contact the Board of Directors, please email board@ciwa-online.com.

“CIWA demonstrates superior relationship building initiatives, such as this retreat, which is relevant today and by engaging with members, staff, and the community, CIWA has resulted in an organization we can trust.”
