Board of Directors

The FAUW Board of Directors oversees FAUW governance and strategic direction, including in relation to the budget, policy development, salary negotiations, and the protection of member rights. FAUW's Board of Directors meets biweekly September through June. Read more about what Board members do.

How are directors chosen?

The voting members of the Board—the president, past president, and 11 directors—are elected by the voting members of the Association. There are faculty-specific and lecturer seats on the Board, to ensure that there is always representation from among the lecturer ranks and from all six faculties. Directors are elected for two-year terms and can serve up to two consecutive terms. There are also non-voting, ex officio representatives from committees and affiliated organizations. Read more about the Board in the FAUW Constitution.
