The CBOQ Board

The CBOQ Board of Directors serves as our governing body between our annual membership meetings at Assembly. The board gives direction and leadership to the spiritual, temporal and administrative affairs and business and property management of the CBOQ. Our board consists of 12 elected directors, three officer-directors (President, 1st Vice President, and Past-President) and one appointed director (2nd Vice President.) Each elected board member is elected for a three-year term that is renewable for one additional term. Board members are nominated by our constituency and are chosen/elected by our members each year at our annual membership meeting at Assembly. Board members must be 18 years old or older, a member in good standing at a CBOQ church and be in full agreement with our constitution.

Our CBOQ board meets five times each year to conduct and carry out the governance responsibilities assigned to it in our bylaw. We are blessed by the sacrificial commitment of our CBOQ board members. Their faithfulness allows us to continue to fulfil our mission of revealing God’s kingdom in Ontario and Quebec.
