Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta (CPAA) is comprised of individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities and their families by ensuring the mission of the CPAA is fulfilled. The board seeks to include representation from the business community, interested stakeholders and adults with a disability, or parents of children who have a disability. The volunteer Board of Directors governs the organization through governance as a leadership model and helps to advance the CPAA’s mission to create a Life without Limits for people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
