Community Members

As part of the NHH Board's commitment to providing the opportunity for public input to the Board's decision-making processes, and as a method of succession planning, Northumberland Hills Hospital regularly recruits community members to sit on its Board committees.

Committee members are considered active participants with voting privileges at committee meetings and may be subsequently appointed to fill a vacant position on the Board of Directors. The selection of Directors is governed by the Board's policies, procedures and bylaws in order to meet its governance needs for a skills-based Board.
