The Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is comprised of parent volunteers from our child care program who meet once a month to help give guidance and direction for the centre through policy development, financial planning and strategic planning.
All parents/guardians of children registered at the center automatically become members of RSOSC and have a right to vote at any board meeting. Parents/guardians are encouraged to join the board, attend the monthly board meetings and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to take part in running RSOSC. The AGM is when the board of Directors governing RSOSC will be elected or re-elected for the next term year. The AGM is held every April to elect in a new board
The 4 executive positions must be filled for our Center to remain open and function normally. We also have up to 4 Director at Large positions that assist in these responsibilities.
