Board & Governance
Curl BC is governed by a Board comprised of Regional/Zone Governors and Governors-at-Large who all serve for a two-year term. New bylaws that were approved at the 2021 AGM will see the board move to being entirely made up of Governors at Large who serve three-year-terms. The position of Past Chair exists in the old bylaws and the new ones. The Board is both elected by and accountable to the curling centres. The Board governs in a manner consistent with a policy governance model, focusing on strategic visionary leadership, policy-making, and collective decision-making. The Board oversees all Curl BC operational activities through the CEO who directly supervises Curl BC staff.
