Protospace has a board of directors. This is a requirement of being incorporated under the Alberta Companies Act. The directors are elected annually, at Protospace's annual general meeting. In the eyes of the law, the directors are responsible for everything Protospace does, but, within Protospace's organizational structure, they are responsible for a lot less.

Directors' responsibilities

  • Managing the bank account
  • Paying bills
  • Performing reimbursements (currently)
  • Dealing with the landlord
  • Dealing with the governments
  • Making case-by-case decisions on small things that affect only one member at a time, such as eligibility for vacation status
  • Accessing the security video recordings when necessary

Things members may think are the directors' responsibilities, but actually can and should be done by other members

  • Making decisions that set policy or otherwise affect multiple members
  • Taking payments
  • Maintaining equipment
  • Accounting
