HALCO has a volunteer Board of Directors elected by our membership. The majority of our nine-member Board of Directors are living with HIV. Our dedicated Board members come from a variety of backgrounds, but they share a commitment to access to justice and to improving the legal environment for people with HIV/AIDS in Ontario.
Being a volunteer Board member is an opportunity to network, to meet others who share your commitment, and to enrich your own knowledge and experience.
Our Board of Directors strives to be diverse and representative of the many facets of the communities served by the clinic. While no particular experience is required, our Board also strives to have members with a variety of experience/knowledge, including: non-profit management, human resources, financial management. You do not need to have any legal experience – just a commitment and willingness to do your best.
HALCO By-laws specify that at least five members of our nine member Board must be living with HIV, and at least one must be a lawyer/former lawyer. A Board member/applicant may choose whether to disclose her/his HIV status or not, but if HIV status is not disclosed, the person is presumed to not be living with HIV. Board members must be HALCO members and must sign our Confidentiality Statement.
Board members are elected for two-year terms. The HALCO Board meets monthly, generally on the last Monday or Wednesday of the month, with occasional special meetings on other days or at other times. Our Board members also participate on Board Committees. For information about our current Board members, please see Board members in our About Us section.
