General Contact Information

Executive Members and Coordinators

The ACCVI section executive has the responsibility for coordinating and promoting all the activities of the club. This includes section membership, scheduled activities and events, finances, and communication with the national club. The executive is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting held in January.

Executive meetings take place approximately every six weeks at the home of one of the members or with an online Zoom meeting. Minutes of executive meetings are posted after each meeting.

ACC Coordinators are not part of the executive but assist with programs, committees and take on other important leadership roles within the club.

Other members of the section are welcome to attend these meetings, but they are asked to contact the Chair beforehand to ensure sufficient accommodation is made.
