About the EOC

The Executive Officers’ Council (EOC) is made up of senior staff members from local, provincial and national levels of the Association.

While strong elected leadership must always direct the Association, it is important that the Association's affairs are managed by competent and professional Executive Officers who also form a key element of the leadership of the Association. The EOC provides an important resource for supporting the professional development of Association staff.

The EOC’s areas of focus include supporting continuous improvement in the administration and management of the Association at all levels; and enhancing co-operation and sharing of experience among Council members. 

The EOC also provides advice to the CHBA Board of Directors on issues of importance, consistent with the objectives of the Association.

As a self-funding Council, membership in the EOC is open to all senior staff within the HBA network, subject to an annual fee, set by the Council.
