Our Board

Our Board

FEX will be governed by a board of 6 to 14 members from across Canada consisting of; family business members, advisors, FEA designates, partners, and academics. A majority of directors on the board will be family business members to ensure that the best interests of family enterprise are protected. A Governance Committee will review, select, and propose board members based on competency, experience, and strategic fit. FEX members will be asked to ratify the slate of directors and officers at each AGM. For now, a transition FEX Board has been created made up mostly of directors from the current CAFE and IFEA Boards (Allen Taylor, Margaret-Jean Mannix, Lenore van Oene, Dave Chucko, Jim Burton, Bill Sheffield, Brian Henley, and Susan St. Amand), and the Governance Committee is made up of a subset of this group.

The board will be supported by a robust committee structure inclusive of Governance, Finance, Membership, Branch, and FEA committees. To ensure FEX branches, volunteers and members maintain a voice within the organization we will engage and include local branch members in these committees as a means of tapping into their expertise and ensuring we stay in touch with the needs of our constituents.
