Board & Committees

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors provides CNH with direction by establishing policies, priorities, long-term plans and renewal for the CNH Society. It approves the annual budget and provides accountability to the members and funders through an annual external audit.

Board members approve programs and services, goals and objectives, and ensure that these are implemented, monitored and evaluated. The Board develops external relations, receives input from members and the community and works on the development of community resources.

Directors, who all live and/or work in Renfrew-Collingwood, sometimes represent CNH at community meetings. The estimated time commitment is eight-10 hours a month.

Committees

CNH hosts several committees that allow the public to get involved in projects and initiatives we are part of. Learn more about each committee below.

Collingwood Days Steering Committee

Collingwood Days is a celebration of the community’s culture, history and roots in transportation. It provides an opportunity for the community and local artists to share their talents and highlight the neighbourhood’s vibrant cultural diversity. Collingwood Days activities culminate with a celebration in a local park and typically takes place in July.

This annual event organized by the Collingwood Business Improvement Association, the Collingwood Community Policing Centre, Renfrew Park Community Association, MOSAIC (Multi-lingual Orientation Service Association for Immigrant Communities), and CNH.

The committee meets once a month to decide the direction, planning and organization of the festival. It follows the guidelines of an MOU signed by the five organizations every five years.
