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 conservation, 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.
VHF would like to acknowledge our outgoing Board Chair, David Dove, with great affection and gratitude. David served on the Board for 10 years and has reached our mandated term limits for service as a Director. VHF is tremendously appreciative of David’s leadership and exemplary commitment to the organization. We look forward to hosting him as a guest at our future events.
