Advisory Board

The founding Advisory Board was established in March 2014. Advisory board members hold a leadership position in their organization and can provide knowledge, recommendations, objective advice and guidance from other academic institutions, industry and government in areas that are relevant to CBB and its members.

Members provide an ongoing exchange of information between industry and CBB, help promote CBB and communicate the Centre's activities to industry, government, the research community, the university and the public. 

Members are nominated by the Operations Committee and are selected by the Centre Director.  Members serve for an initial three year term that may be renewed.

Meetings are held 1-2 times annually and are open to the Director and Associate Directors of CBB, CBB Operations Committee and staff.
