Board of Directors

Committed to Accountability

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. Additionally, each June, they review comprehensive reports from the CEO and the Leadership team to ensure alignment with the strategic goals and objectives. An Annual Report is then developed and presented to Society members at the Annual General Meeting in September and shared internally with residents, family members, clients and staff.
