Board of Directors

Annual General Meeting 2018 - April 5, 2018




The Results Are In!

A large and complex organization, the RA has been serving our community for 75 years. As a not-for-profit association, the RA is governed by a Board of Directors made up of 16 members elected from the membership. The Board has fiduciary and duty of care responsibility, in a way that reflects the mission, vision and values of the organization and is respectful of its Constitution and By-Laws. In fulfilling its responsibilities on behalf of the members, the Board of Directors provides oversight, due diligence and strategic direction.

Elections to the RA Board of Directors recently concluded. We were very pleased to have had an amazing response to our call for nominations with fifteen (15) RA members submitting their application to run for election to fill 11 vacancies.


The following members have been elected to a 4-year term:
