The Canadian Angus Association is a member-driven Association that provides an accurate, current breed registry and the best tools available to verify parentage. The Association is governed by a Board of Directors elected from its members with representation across the country. The Board acts on behalf of the membership to provide strategic oversight and ensure that the organization achieves its goals. The board’s connection to the operational aspects of the organization is through the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The CEO is responsible for maintaining operational sustainability and is accountable to the Board.
The Canadian Angus Association’s governance approach is summarized as the Board being responsible for setting the strategic direction and principles of the Association and it is the CEO’s responsibility to manage operations. The Canadian Angus Association has governance, association, and operating policies to provide guidance and support to the Board and the CEO to facilitate a collaborative approach to further the objectives of the Association. The Policies provide accountability to each other and the membership.
