The board of directors are the decision makers driving association direction and policy. They work closely with local stakeholders and policymakers, including local, provincial, and federal governments, and tourism operators to help grow cycling access and infrastructure. The board meets regularly (every 1-2 months) and each board member commits roughly 3 – 10+ hours per month depending on the role and season. All roles are currently filled by volunteers.


Board members have a responsibility to act in the best interests of the association in line with our mission and vision. The board is responsible for the sound management of the society including but not limited to strategy, finances, and operations. Each board member is required to stay current with the major issues of the association and attend at least 80% of regularly scheduled meetings. Board members are expected to be responsive to communications. Board members are expected to engage and develop a committee of volunteers to assist in fulfilling their responsibilities.
