The TESL Ontario Board is committed to operating within a pure Policy Governance model. The Board values the link between itself and the membership. The major purpose of the Board is to establish policies that govern how TESL Ontario does business and makes decisions.
One of the most important policies describes the Strategic Objectives or Ends. All activities of the association are undertaken to meet these Ends. They are perceived as benefits to the membership.
All Board positions are Members-at-Large and serve a 3-year term with the option of one renewable term. Elections are held in the fall and the new slate of Directors is presented at the TESL Ontario Annual General Meeting. The offices of Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are all elected from within the Board of Directors after the AGM.
The Board meets five times each year.
