Council (Board of Directors)

The Circle Project is a registered not-for-profit charity, governed by a seven-member Council (Board of Directors).

According to the organization’s bylaws, six of the seven seats must be filled by persons of Aboriginal descent. Further, one of the positions is reserved for an Elder from the First Nations community in Regina.

To ensure good governance, Council members have overseen the development of a comprehensive procedures manual that applies to all aspects of Council and staff activities. Key among the best practices the Council follows are the principles of accountability and transparency.

Council members bring a variety of skills and abilities to the table, as well as varied community perspectives. This helps us stay current in the community and assists in the development of partnerships to help ensure the cost effective delivery of community services and programs.

Council members are elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting. Before becoming a member of the Council, a person must be a Circle Project member in good standing for a year or more.
