The Board of Directors
The APPHBM is a non-profit organization established by letters patent under Part 3 of the Companies Act on May 14 1982.
The Board of Directors (BOD) is made up of five volunteer administrators- the majority are parents with a handicapped child/ren. In general, board meetings are held once a month and as needed in accordance with the Association.
The BOD is in charge of the assets, services and activities of the Association. The board decides the policies, plans, and priorities implemented to serve its’ members to the best of their abilities.
The Managing Director, Maurice Ménard, is in charge of all the services and activities, as well as the daily management of the Association. Our Director’s Executive Assistant, Josée Proulx, oversees the work of the animators, participants and volunteers on site. Various work committees are brought forth to manage projects and issues that are more time consuming. Members involve themselves on a voluntary basis depending on their interest and availabilities. For example, the website, conferences, special events, financing, etc. The working committees report to the Board of Directors regarding their work and suggestions.

The BOD meetings are held in a relaxed and lively atmosphere, where all members have the well being of each other, and their children, at heart.
