Board of Directors

2017 Board of Directors

FCM's Board of Directors comprises elected municipal officials and affiliate members from all regions and various-sized communities throughout Canada. It forms a broad base of support and carries the municipal message to the Government of Canada.

The Board of Directors sets policy priorities that reflect the concerns of municipal governments and affiliate members. It meets quarterly to develop policy positions on key national municipal issues.

During the quarterly meetings, the various standing committees meet to discuss and develop policy positions on these key issues. These recommendations are then forwarded to the Board of Directors who discuss and adopt the recommendations.

All positions on FCM's  Board of Directors are filled by election on an annual basis, with the exception of those designated for affiliate members and the immediate past president, as outlined in the FCM by-laws, during the Annual Conference.

The president, first vice-president, second vice-president and third vice-president are elected at large. The position of immediate past president is an automatic succession.

FCM's Annual Conference provides member delegates the opportunity to debate and vote on policy matters for the coming year.
