and Committees

FSRS Board of Directors

FSRS is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. In accordance with our by-laws, an election must be held to replace those Board members whose term expires in the current year; the incumbent members may stand for re-election. Participation on the Board of Directors is one of the ways to help shape FSRS’s contribution in sustainability of marine resourses in Canada. Board members are expected to participate in meetings/ teleconferences as required, and to attend an annual meeting. To serve on the Board, a candidate must be a FSRS member in good standing, and must be at least 18 years of age.
