NCF's Board of Directors includes 11 elected members who donate their time and experience to set NCF’s strategic direction, oversee the work of staff, and ensure that NCF is financially sound and meeting all its legal responsibilities.
Directors are elected by NCF members at the online Annual General Meeting and generally have two or three-year terms to allow some continuity. These terms are staggered so that approximately one-third of the board seats is open for nominations and election each year.
