Board of Directors Roles and Responsibilities

The elected or appointed board members oversee the activities of PAN, and as a collective group, the Board is the governing body of PAN organization. PAN Board members establish broad policies and objectives, such as organization’s vision, values and strategic directions, with the help of the Executive Director and staff. Board members are expected to support the Executive Director and staff in ensuring PAN activities and initiatives follow the organizational mission, mandate and strategic plan. Other roles include approving annual budgets and keeping the organization’s performance accountable to relevant stakeholders.

This year, the Board brought forward a new set of bylaws that were successfully adopted by the members, to change PAN’s governance structures to ensure consistency with inclusion principles of GIPA/MIPA, the HCV Manifesto, and Nothing About Us Without Us and to give Indigenous organizations a designated voice, consistent with community respect and Truth and Reconciliation principles.
