Until that process is completed the Region is to provide two UCC appointees. At this time the bylaws state that “The Board of Directors consists of a minimum of seven directors and a maximum of fifteen directors that govern the affairs of the Corporation. At least one, and a maximum of two voting directors are to be appointed by the Prairie to Pine Region as a representative of the United Church of Canada.”
