About the Executive

The Executive manages and conducts the affairs of the Society.

The Executive is composed of one layperson, appointed by the Commissioner for a  term of three years, and no less than four other persons who are elected in accordance with the rules from among the members of the Society who are resident in the Northwest Territories. Once elected, the members of the executive choose, among themselves, the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. The offices of Secretary and Treasurer may be held by the same person. The Executive typically appoints a Deputy Secretary (or Deputy Secretary-Treasurer) to perform the functions and duties of these offices.

Every active resident member is eligible for nomination and election to the Executive. As well, every retiring member of the Executive is eligible for nomination and re-election to the Executive. Every active member, other than those under arestricted appearance certificate, is entitled to vote at an election of the Executive.
