The existence of the Society is dependent on the contribution of its members. Each member is expected to contribute to the society in some way in order for the society to maintain an affordable rent level and family atmosphere. Members can contribute to the society by becoming a Board or Committee member or volunteering or participating in other areas. The members of the Board of Directors are a group of people responsible not for the day-to-day running of the society, but for governing it. The day-to-day operations are taken care of by several full time employees of the Society.
Mandatory Member Involvement
It is mandatory for members to attend one of two annual meetings each year. This is where by-law changes are made and a volunteer Board of Directors is elected by the Membership.
