GOVERNANCE

OMCI is governed by a Board of DIrectors representing all three stakeholder groups.  Our inaugural Board was appointed at the time of incorporation and are serving an initial two or three-year term. 

 

Our model is a "Policy and Governance" board, providing necessary oversight and setting long term policy and fiscal direction.
