CaRMS’ member organizations and stakeholders recommend directors and the CaRMS Governance Committee prepares a slate of nominations for Board vacancies, which are presented to the Board for approval and subsequently for member organization approval at the annual members’ meeting. Once elected or appointed to the Board, directors with their unique perspectives from their member or stakeholder organizations act in a fiduciary capacity on behalf of CaRMS in their deliberations and in their decisions.
