How Equity is governed

Equity Governance
Equity is a democratically structured organization run by artists for artists. It is entirely self-supporting, funded by members' initiation fees and dues. Equity is the united voice of its members, and its strength lies in the collective support given by its members to its members.
The government of Equity is vested in a national Council of 22 members from across Canada. The number of Councillors from each region is proportional to the number of members in each region. The current Council is elected for a three-year term beginning November 2012 and lasting until November 2015.

Equity's national Council uses "Policy Governance" as the operating structure of the Association. Click here for further information on Equity's governing structure.

Three Council meetings per year are face-to-face, and seven more are conducted by telephone conference call.

Council Officers for 2012-2015:
The officers of the Association, including President, First Vice-President, Second Vice-President and Secretary/Treasurer were elected at Council's inaugural meeting on December 4, 2012.
President Allan Teichman Councillor for Stage Management
First Vice-President
(Advisory Coordinator)
Kerry Davidson Councillor for British Columbia /Yukon
Second Vice-President
(Member Liaison)
Aaron Willis Councillor for Ontario
Secretary/ Treasurer Evan R. Klassen Councillor for Eastern Opera

Councillors are volunteers and are not paid for their service, although reasonable out of pocket expenses are reimbursed. The Council President receives an honorarium set by Council.

Request for Council Action
Councillors and members-at-large may submit topics to Council for discussion by using the Request for Council Action form. Once completed, a copy of the form will be forwarded to the Council President, Secretary-Treasurer and to the Executive Director.
For information on how Council deliberates requests for consideration on any matter, please see Equity Council's Policies - GP-4 - Agenda Planning, Article 7
