All governance of Encore is carried out by volunteers. As a non-profit organization, we rely upon the many and varied activities of volunteers to achieve our goals. We continually endeavour to recruit new volunteers to serve as class presenters, to fill vacant positions on the Board of Directors and Committees and to participate in fundraising activities. We strive to ensure that such participation is a positive and rewarding experience.

Below is the list of our governance and administration positions that ensure the smooth functioning of Encore. All governance positions are staffed by volunteers.
