Committee Terms of Reference

Our Committees

Committees serve a critical role in taking our strategic plans, defining tactical plans and identifying ways to implement them in a way that benefits all our members.

Our Governance Committee has developed terms of reference for each of the committees identified in our Bylaws. These terms provide an overview of the mandate of each committee, its structure, staff support, and meeting frequency. The terms of reference were approved by the Board of Directors on June 18th, 2019, with each committee comprised of Directors from our Board and volunteers from our community (both members and non-members of the BDIA).

A copy of each committee’s terms of reference may be found below. The Board of Directors encourages everyone interested in participating on a committee to submit an expression of interest to our Executive Director at
