Board of Directors

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Farm-focused professionals giving back to their peers and Canada's farm families and businesses.

As a non-profit, CAFA is governed by a volunteer board of directors. It is a governance board, not operational.  It's basic responsibilities include: setting policy, supporting the CEO, guiding long-range planning and development, monitoring finance, working cooperatively with other board members, and being an Ambassador for the organization. 

The board has a Code of Ethic and Conflict of Interest Policy. Both are critical to its overall effectiveness. All Board Members must sign off on these policies annually.
