Governance & Nominations Committee
Our Governance and Nominations Committee (GNC) is a governance committee that helps us run our organization. This committee reports and makes recommendations to Council but does not have authority to make decisions.
The GNC indirectly supports our regulatory work by overseeing our governing documents (bylaws, policies, etc.) and practices, and volunteer recruitment and selection.
