Role of the Board
The PVWD Board is managed by five Sub-District Board Chairmen, a Board Chairman and an additional member who represents the Province as a Provincial Appointee. Each Rural Municipality within the district appoints two people to the sub-district, only one of who may be a councilor. The entire board meets in March each year for our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and decides who will be the chairman and vice-chairman of the sub-district. When one of the sub-district chairmen is elected chairman of the district board, that sub-district shall appoint a second member to sit on the district board and serve as sub-district chairman.
The district board is responsible and accountable for all matters relating to its programs. The board will hire staff to assist with programs and to carry out projects and programs that have been approved by the board members.
