There is an ex-offico board member role which is appointed by The Pacific Region of the United Church of Canada and is not counted in the minimum and maximum amounts.
 
Currently, two board members are finished their first year of their first term, Daphne Woo and Christina Kinch, and are therefore not up for re-election.

Bronwyn Carrodus – Current Chair
Rachel Philips – Current Secretary

These board members have announced that they will stand for re-election.

You’ve been a huge asset to the organization Josh.
A huge thank you for all your time and energy you’ve put into camp!
