Board of Directors
The Board of Directors of ICHM Canada is composed of fourteen members. As an inter-church organization we are proud of the fact that our Board is drawn from various denominations. Directors are elected to three-year terms with a staggered election schedule to ensure continuity.
Since its inception in 1994, the Board has been a working Board as it struggled with the challenges of starting a movement from scratch. Tasks included developing by-laws, applying for incorporation, developing criteria for partnering, developing educational programs for Parish Nurses, Clergy and Health Cabinets, seeking charitable status and establishing funding.
The mission of ICHM Canada is "fostering healthy communities through Christ’s healing ministry".
Regular Board meetings are held four times a year, with two additional meetings focusing on specialized topics, including the annual budget. The Board regularly spends time "visioning" towards the future of this ministry. The Board has specified expectations and responsibilities of all members, which includes participation on one working committee.
In addition to the Board, the following committees contribute to the life of ICHM Canada: Education Advisory, Finance and Funding, Nominating, and Benefit Concert.
