Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the MPWWA is an elected administrative body. Presently it includes four provincial Department of Environment representatives and one federal representative.
The provinces are divided into 12 zones, (described here), each having one representative. Each Atlantic province has one member at large and the Department of National Defence has one representative.
The election of officers is held each year at the annual seminar. The positions of Secretary, Treasurer and Registrar are appointed either from the elected Board of Directors or the general membership.
