Leadership Council Members




What does it mean to be on the Leadership Council of HCIA?

Since our inception in late 2004, HCIA has been a convener of community conversations.  We provide citizens with information about emerging issues and opportunities and also support the start-up of collaborative projects that enhance community well-being. We function as a backbone organization, a community partner and a communicator.

That means our Leadership Council members should be leaders from the community who can:

  • Act as Ambassadors for HCIA within the community
  • Identify and engage citizens to join the organization
  • Ensuring that all committees and projects are true to HCIA’s vision and mandate
  • Monitor the work of the Working Groups
  • Selecting and monitor consultants and other resources to support the work of HCIA
  • Keep an eye out for new initiatives, partnerships and connections
  • Approve an annual budget and oversee our financial management

We are happy to answer any questions – please get in touch with us!
