GOVERNANCE

A dedicated and hardworking volunteer Board of Directors govern the Foundation. Directors are elected at the Annual General Meeting by the Foundation Members (West Vancouver Memorial Library Board Trustees with the exception of the West Vancouver Municipal Council representative), for a term of two years. Similarly, the Members appoint the Chair of the Foundation. The other Officers of the Foundation are appointed from the Directors by the Foundation itself.

The two primary responsibilities of the Directors are fundraising and stewardship of the Foundation’s assets. The Foundation operates in close cooperation with the Library staff and Library Board.
