NEED TO KNOW

Why we do what we do

Our goal is to build a membership that represents the interests and concerns of all health care consumers in our area. We strive to create a group of engaged individuals who reflect the diverse professional, cultural and personal interests of the people living in our region. A dynamic mix of people provides a cross section of skills, viewpoints and ideas which help us make the important decisions related to our goals and mission.

Joining the Foundation is easy

Just download the AWHF Society Membership Application Form and pass it on to a Board member or, submit it by mail, email or FAX. You can also drop it off in person at the Foundation office at the Health Centre. If you are interested in serving on the Board, this is your first step.  Board members are appointed from the Foundation Society Membership.

What could I do as a Foundation Member?

You are welcome to attend all Board meetings and Society events, participate in discussions regarding Foundation business, become involved on various committees and be nominated for membership on the Board. Board members are selected from members of the Foundation Society who have been on the membership list for at least six months and have demonstrated a strong interest in the work of the Foundation.

What is the time commitment?

All you need is a few hours to spare each month. All Foundation members are encouraged to learn about the role and business of the Foundation and are welcome to attend Board meetings. The Board meets monthly or bi-monthly on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Board members serve for a three-year term and can be elected during a regular meeting or, at the Annual General Meeting, which is held each May.
