Our Board of Directors
The OPFA has a National Board who has the responsibility for overseeing all activities of the organization including compiling and submitting our financial information to the Canada Revenue Agency as we are required to do as a national charity. The Chapters are a part of the OPFA but operate independently under the guidelines provided by national. For a comparison, think of the analogy of Franchiser / Franchisee. Chapter Presidents are also members of the Board of Directors of the Association.
