Board of Directors

The CHS is governed by a Board of Directors, which ordinarily consists of 11 members, but no less than seven. The Board of Directors is made up of volunteers that give their time freely to manage the society and its activities. Directors other than the President, Vice-President and Past-President serve for three year terms that may be renewed a maximum of two times. The President, Vice-President and Past-President serve two year terms that are non-renewable.
