Here are some suggested guidelines as to the Roles and Responsibilities of the District Directors, recognizing that their Roles and Responsibilities will vary from district to district.

The OAAS is a non-profit organization incorporated under the Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act 1988. The role of the Board of Directors is to provide overall leadership for the association and to ensure that its mission and vision are fulfilled. 

The Board of Directors meet a minimum of 3 times / year in person and attend regular Conference Call Board and Committee Meetings.  Directors are expected to prepare for, attend and participate in these very important meetings.  Agendas and information packages will be sent via email prior to each meeting.  Each Director will also be expected to participate and take an active role in a number of operational and convention committees.  

No matter what other skills a board member has, he or she must have these:

  • A passion for the cause
  • Respect for others
  • Works well with a team (a team player)
  • Thoughtful ability to consider issues, and to articulate those thoughts
  • A sense of responsibility for making things happen
  • The vision to think beyond today
