CIES Board of Directors

The Board is the legislative and policy-making body of the Society, with the power to review and direct the general affairs of the Association.

The Board has 18 members including 7 elected officers, 2 student representatives, 8 regular members and the appointed Editor of the CER journal. Elected officers of the Board are the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, Vice-President, Board Treasurer, Board Secretary, and Historian.

The elected officers, along with the Editor of the CER constitute the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee manages the day to day requirements of the Board and serves as an advisory group to the Board as a whole. It has the power to act on behalf of the full Board between meetings and on other matters as determined by the Board.

Two other persons  participate in the Executive Committee and Board activities, serving as advisors to the Board in a non-voting capacity. The Parliamentarian works with the President to ensure that procedures and motions in meetings are carried out according to the Society's policies, rules and procedures. The Executive Director advises the Board on all the business and operational matters of the Society.
