     Board of Directors

The Greenwoods Eldercare Society is an independent not-for-profit organization affiliated with Island Health and BC Housing.  The Society is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors with a diverse range of backgrounds including healthcare, education, business, government, and non-profits.  The Board of Directors is a governance committee that meets once a month to review and oversee the operations of the Society.  Annually, the Board of Directors host an Annual General Meeting (AGM) that is announced in the local newspaper (Driftwood) and serves as both a retrospective review of the year past and a prospective preview of the year ahead.  Key roles and responsibilities of Board membership include:

  • advocacy
  • committee work
  • resource development
  • liaison with stakeholders and funding providers

This is an active Board, which has a direct and lasting influence on the health and well-being of the organization and the elder population the Greenwoods Society serves.
