The WBII is an association run by the members for the members. Our Board of Directors consists of committed ‘working members’, each taking specific responsibilities to support the WBII but functioning as a team. Our Board members give their time on a voluntary basis. They meet regularly to establish, review and implement the business strategy of the WBII, ensuring that our association is on track and sustainable. We aim to have five members on the Board, each bringing in specific skills.
Within the Board of Directors, there are several core roles and responsibilities. The Board meets on a monthly basis, each member committing to an average of ±10 hours per month (and at times more) on WBII business, and is responsible for day-to-day operations.
Members currently serving on the Board are:
- Charlene Lambert, President
- Dymphna Elsink, Vice-President
- Lisa Hall, Treasurer
- Natalie Carstens, Secretary
- Moran Greenwald
