Board of Directors

There are up to 15 voting Directors of Vancouver Heritage Foundation. All Directors are appointed by the City of Vancouver Mayor and Council for a two-year term but may be re-appointed. The Board meets monthly throughout the year. The Board of Directors is responsible for increasing private and public sector involvement and investment in the conservation of heritage resources, distributing funds according to developed allocation processes, developing policies for the programs undertaken by VHF and prudently managing VHF assets.

As this is an active fundraising organization, the Board engages in fundraising activities and promotes VHF to the public, sponsors, donors and planned giving professionals. The Board of Directors aims to include individuals with expertise in architecture, real estate development, heritage restoration, tourism, financial management, estate planning, fundraising and communications.

Mayor and Council are Honorary Directors of VHF retaining limited voting rights with respect to appointment of Directors, changes to the constitution and the expulsion of Directors.
