Note that for a few of the Committees, there is no description as yet. That is coming soon!

The executive committee includes the President, Past President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary.  This committee meets before each board meeting (if needed) and takes care of many of the housekeeping duties for the SSM.

The Finance & Audit Committee is the financial watchdog of the SSM.  The people on this committee look over all the financial reports to make sure that money is being spent in the best possible way.  At the beginning of our year, they are responsible to put a budget together.  The budget is then brought to a board meeting for approval.  Before each Board Meeting, this committee will meet to look over all the finances and get a report ready to present at the meeting. This committee will meet regularly.

The past president is the chair of this committee. All nominations must be forwarded to him/her. The SSM has an elected board that consists of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and 8 Members at Large. The members are elected for a two-year term. Upon prior approval of nomination by a member organization, an individual is eligible to stand for election as an officer or member-at-large at the Annual General Meeting. Nominations must be received by the Nomination Committee at least 30 days prior to the AGM.

Led by the past president each year, this committee is responsible to receive nominations for the executive & member at large positions on the SSM Board. Nomination forms are made available to all member organizations.

Research and action on issues relevant to seniors.

The mandate of this committee is to review the Bylaws annually, and to prepare amendments as required, to review governance issues that are raised by the Board, and to have oversight of the policies and procedures of SSM.  The vice-president chairs this committee.
