Board of Directors

The PEMAC Board of Directors is made up of a number of elected directors (between 5 and 15 as set by the Board) each serving a three year term. Each year approximately 1/3 of the Board rotates off and elections are held for those director positions.

The Board selects the executive team (President, Vice President and Acting Chairs) at the first meeting following the AGM each year.

The Board of Directors is currently working from the 2014 - 2019 Strategic Plan.
