DWA Committees

Standing Committees allow Directors to gain a better understanding of key areas of board responsibility. Standing Committees address a specific mandate or task and provide recommendations to the general Board. Any Director may express an interest to join or retire from a Standing Committee to the Chair of the respective committee. Non-board persons, being volunteers-at-large, may provide recommendations as advisory participants. Committees meet every 4 to 8 weeks and the time commitment is approximately 2 to 5 hours each month.

Standing Committees shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • Human Resources and Director Recruitment Committee
  • By-Law and Policy Review Committee
  • Director Development Committee
  • Finance Committee
  • Strategic Planning Committee


If you have questions or would like more information on Board and/or Committee member activities, please contact our office at admin@durhamwa.ca.

We look forward to hearing from you.
