Board of Directors

The KGCA board is elected from interested residents at the AGM each year. All members are volunteers and are asked to serve a term of at least two years to help with continuity. The board and the association operate according to a set of bylaws that you can find here.

The board meets once a month (and the Development Committee meet another two times each month). All meetings are open to the public, and are held on the lower level of the KGCA Hall – 2828 28th St SW, Calgary. See our Events Calendar for the dates of the next meeting.

You can see the minutes from our meetings below:
