Members of our current Board of Directors

We are currently seeking candidates for our Board of Directors. Please join us to learn more at our information session on Tuesday, April 16 at 7 pm at our office. For more information and application criteria, visit our News section.

All of our board members:

  • Live or work in Durham Region;
  • Have an interest in children and quality children’s services;
  • Are able to attend at least two meetings per month;
  • Are members of the Society;
  • Support the Vision, Mission and objectives of Durham CAS; and
  • Are interested in advocating for the needs of children.

As the demographic profile of Durham Region is constantly changing, we are expressly interested in receiving inquiries and applications from members of Durham’s visible minority community.

If you are interested in getting involved with our Board, contact Susan McNeil, 905-433-1551, ext. 2236

Board meetings are held monthly (usually on the last Thursday of the month), and are open to the public.
