Board of Directors

The 15 Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDCs) of Eastern Ontario are independent, community-based, not-for-profit organizations. Each CFDC is governed by a local Board of Directors comprised of knowledgeable, committed volunteers. It is staffed by professionals who advance entrepreneurship, small business development and the pursuit of economic opportunities in their communities. The Eastern Ontario Community Futures Network is a membership association of the 15 CFDCs. The Network’s Board of Directors is comprised of one elected representative from each of the 15 CFDCs. These representatives are drawn from the local Boards of each CFDC as well as from CFDC management.
