Board of Directors

KinVillage Association has an elected volunteer Board of Directors to provide Policy Governance. This devoted group monitors progress towards the Society’s Strategic Goals and Objectives.

The annual operational budget is approved by the Board of Directors each April based on the operational plan developed by the Leadership Team.
