The Board of Directors is the legal authority of Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides (LFCDG).
Each Board Director acts in a position of trust for the organization and is responsible for the effective governance of the organization fulfilling their duty of care, duty of loyalty, and duty of obedience.
- Duty of care means directors must give the same care and concern to their board responsibilities as any prudent and ordinary person would.
- Duty of loyalty means directors must place the interests of LFCDG ahead of their own interests at all times.
- Duty of obedience means directors must make sure LFCDG is abiding by all applicable laws and regulations and doesn’t engage in illegal or unauthorized activities
Board Directors serve in partnership with the CEO to provide insight, oversight and foresight of LFCDG. Each member sits on the board for a three-year term, with the exception of the Chair.
