Board of Directors

The Board manages the RA in the interests of its members, in a way that reflects the mission, vision and values of the organization and is respectful of its Constitution and By-Laws.

The Board determines the vision and strategic direction for the RA, the organization’s governance structure and policies, and the RA Management Framework. These elements are designed to support and strengthen its own work and the management accountability structure and processes of the organization. The policies define the Chief Executive Officer’s role, authority and accountability, the parameters within which the CEO operates and the roles and responsibilities of the Board of Directors.



The next Annual General Meeting of the Recreation Association of the Public Service of Canada will be held in March 2018.  Details on the date, time and location of the meeting to follow.



Are you someone who can think strategically, enjoys teamwork and is interested in gaining a broader perspective of the RA? If yes, the work of the Board of Directors could be for you!  Join the governance of this vibrant organization that for over 75 years has been making a difference in member's lives in the National Capital Region.  Lend your skills and perspectives to the RA's Board of Directors or nominate a respected peer.
