Board of Directors

The Board is the governing body, responsible for setting a vision, developing strategies to achieve the vision, and formulating policies.  The Board is responsible for the services provided, and actions taken by, the corporation. The Chief Administrative Officer implements the Board’s policies and decisions, and handles all operations.

The RDEK Board is comprised of 6 electoral area directors and 9 municipal directors. Electoral area directors are elected to the Board by the electors in the areas they represent. The directors representing the municipalities are appointed by their respective Councils.  The Chair and Vice Chair are elected annually by the Board.

We meet once per month, generally on the first Friday of the month. The meetings are held in the RDEK Board Room (19 24th Ave S, Cranbrook) and start at 9:00am.  The Thursday immediately before the Board Meeting, we have Committee Meetings. The Committees make recommendations to the Board. Both the Board and Committee meetings are open to the public.
