Our Board of Directors
The role of our Board of Directors is to provide governance to the organization, identify and monitor strategic priorities and set policies.

WHC values the different perspectives, knowledge, skills and interests that each Director brings to the Board.
We are currently recruiting 2-3 volunteers to join the Board of Directors in June 2022. Directors are generally elected for an initial three-year term and may be eligible for re-election for a consecutive two-year term.
