Governance and Executive Officers

The Association is administered by a board of directors made up of a member resident in each of the provinces and territories and a representative of the Federal Court of Canada and the Tax Court of Canada. Members elect a director to represent their particular province or court. The board meets at least three times a year.

The executive committee consists of the president, past president, vice-president, treasurer and secretary, all selected annually by the members of the board of directors. By tradition, at least one member of the executive committee is a judge of the Superior Court or the Court of Appeal of Quebec. A council of between 20 and 60 Association members, each elected to a two-year term, meets at least once a year and assists the board in governing the Association.
