Board of Directors


IIBA Ottawa-Outaouais Executive Team

The IIBA Ottawa-Outaouais chapter's executive team is made up of directors who are elected by chapter members at the Annual General Meeting. The Executive team is supported by non-board support roles as needed.

Each board member performs a combination of governance, administrative, and operational roles. The Board of Directors meets on a regular basis to oversee the administrative affairs of the chapter and develop strategic plans for its growth, plan events, discuss guest speakers and provide direction for subcommittees.
