Organizational Structure

The Coalition is made up of individual and group members.  Each has one vote.  

  • A group member should designate a representative and an alternate.  
  • A family is made up of two or more individual members, each with a vote.
  • An individual may also be a group representative, thereby having 2 votes: one personal vote and one vote for their group at member's meetings.
  • All members must be approved by the Board

The Carolinian Canada Board consists of 9- 18 directors with a balance between individual and group members.

  • All Directors are individual members of the Coalition. Additionally some are supported by a group. 
  • Each Director has one vote at board meetings.
  • Board groups include those groups that nominate a Director and  accept support responsibilities for that member as a representative of their group.
  • Candidates shall normally be elected from a slate prepared by the Executive Committee.  In addition, a candidate can be nominated by two members.
  • Directors shall serve a full three (3) year term, once renewable, with at least a one (1) year break in service before eligibility is renewed. 
  • The Board convenes quarterly

Committees are reviewed annually by the board and appointed from time to time.  Standing Committees include:

  • Executive Committee 
  • Audit Committee
  • Awards Committee
  • Science Advisory Committee
