  • Arrange for the Vice Chair/President to chair in the meeting if required

  • Chair the Annual General Meeting and any other general member meetings that may be called

  • Provide oversight of the work of the corporation on behalf of the Board, handle any personnel issues that may arise between Members of the Board or as a result of non-performance of duties by a Director or conflict of interest situations handle member complaints arising out of the actions of the staff or volunteers

  • The responsibilities of the President may be changed from time to time, and flow from Board policies on governance.
