ABOUT THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Board is composed of 7 elected members. The role of the Board of Directors is to take administrative and creative initiative in providing direction on the activities and functioning of articule. This involves attending Board meetings and general assemblies,and keeping oneself informed of the centre's status on several levels: its programming and financial situations, itsstanding within the various collectives and groups it participates in, and its standing vis à vis funding organizations. As well, Board members sit on at least one of the centre’s committees,and attend openings, artist talks, and other articule activities based on their interests. The Board is delegated by the general membership to establish policies. It must, therefore, represent the interests of the general membership.
