The Society is dependent on the contributions of its members. Each member is expected to contribute to the society in some way in order for the society to maintain an affordable rent level and family atmosphere. Members can contribute to the society by becoming a Board or Committee member or volunteering in other areas. The members of the Board of Directors are a group of people responsible not for the day to day running of the institution, but for governing it. The day to day operations are taken care of by several full time employees of the Society.
It is strongly recommended for members to attend one annual meetings per year. This is where by-law changes are made and a Board of Directors is elected by the Membership
