Who We Are

One of SASCI's strengths lies in the breadth and depth of the knowledge and experience of its staff and Directors, and their belief in and commitment to the purpose of the organization.  Each Director is expected to understand and consider diverse issues, concerns, and perspectives relevant to the economic, environmental, and/or social sustainability of the community.  From time to time, Directors may consult other stakeholders to enhance understanding of community views on a specific issue and to disseminate information about SASCI programs and activities.

SASCI’s Board of Directors routinely reviews progress of every SASCI program and initiative. Many Directors commit extra time to participate in committee work, deliver SASCI services, such as facilitation and moderation, engage stakeholders, and advance key projects to promote community sustainability.

SASCI's Board comprises up to 12 Directors.  Directors are elected to the Board by SASCI's members at the Annual General Meeting.  To ensure continuity, only half of the Directors stand for election in any one year.  Directors serve a two-year term, but there is no limit on the number of terms.  Any SASCI member in good standing is eligible to be nominated for and elected to the Board of Directors.  The Executive Officers (Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer) are elected by the Board following the AGM.

SASCI's Manager, supported by the Board and volunteers, coordinates SASCI’s programs and services.
