The Société francophone de Maillardville (SFM) is a registered charitable and not-for-profit organisation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Directors dedicated many volunteer hours to provide direction on policy, programs and facility development.
The SFM Board of Directors (BOD) is made of seven members from the community, elected for two years.
In collaboration with the Executive Director, board members help improve the organisation governance, pursue the mission and ensure legal obligation. The Board must also ensure transparency and develop a strategic plan, which provide measurable benchmarks. To ensure transparency, the Board must submit reports, such as financial statements, president report etc. during meetings and AGMs.
