CAUL Board

The Board consists of four Directors elected from among the full members of CAUL and three Directors appointed by the Board for their skills and experience (not required to be a member of CAUL). Elections are held each year as terms end. Terms of Directors are for two years, for a maximum of three consecutive terms (maximum of six consecutive years). A Director of the Board may hold an officer role for a maximum of four consecutive years. Board members have access to a comprehensive Board Manual and a repository of Corporate Documents.

There are three ongoing officer roles to which Directors of the Board may be assigned by the Board: Chair, Deputy Chair and Chair of the Finance, Risk & Audit Committee. A fourth ongoing officer role is that of Chair of the Content Procurement Committee which is equivalent to a program director role. Program director roles may be assigned as needed to lead the implementation of strategy. The Executive Director is an ex officio member of the Board.
