Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is responsible for the governance of the Training & Learning Centre. The Board is made up of volunteers from the community. The ten Directors represent different parts of Renfrew County and bring a variety of work and life experiences to their Board work. Seats are reserved on the Board for at least one tutor and one student.

Board members are elected at the Annual General Meeting in June. The term of office is two years. The Board meets at least eight times per year. Board members also serve on committees (e.g. finance, personnel, publicity and fundraising) to carry out the work of the Board.
