Board of Directors

The CSAM-SMCA volunteer Board of Directors oversees the society’s operations. Board members are elected by resolution and may hold their seats for up to four years. We strive for national representation on our board, aiming to include at least one member from each province and territory when possible. All board members must belong to a Canadian self-regulatory and licencing body, remain in good standing throughout their tenure, and be licenced to practice. For more details on the composition and responsibilities of our board, visit our bylaws page.
