Community Forest Governance

Posted by administrator on 2011-10-17 20:53:03 UTC

Over the past year the Steering Committee reviewed various styles of governance being used by community forests around BC. We obtained governance documents and talked to many of these community forests and looked at other long term community groups at how they governed their organization. As well we talked to people in our own community about how they would wish a community forest be governed. In the end we chose a Society model. On April 05, 2011 the BC Registrar of Societies accepted our application to become a society and we are now known as the Columbia Headwaters Community Forest Association (CHWCFA). The Constitution & By-Laws can be found in our documents section on this website.
