Board Governance​

The Board is the governing body of CDSBC.

Governance is the way an organization conducts its affairs.

Good governance is the cornerstone of any well-functioning organization. It includes clearly articulated roles and responsibilities for all parties at CDSBC – the Board and individual Board members, the Elected Officers, Registrar and College staff.

Better governance keeps the Board focused on the critical issues, leaving the day-to-day running of the organization to highly capable staff. This also gives staff clear direction and allows them to function effectively.

Board responsibilities, as set out in the legal framework, are outlined in CDSBC’s Board Governance Manual (PDF) and reflect today’s best governance practices to ensure CDSBC fulfills its mandate.

The Board has established a governance working group that develops and recommends CDSBC’s approach to good governance and Board effectiveness, and reviews CDSBC’s governance policies relating to human resources and their effective implementation.
