Intention

The intent is that this Board be a working Board as well as a consulting and decision-making Board. If necessary, final decisions will be made by the Chair of the EFTEC Board.

Philosophy

In bringing EFT to Edmonton and greater Alberta, we want to hold to a spirit of collaboration, co-operation, inclusiveness and perhaps most important a sense of security that we are all there for each other.

Structure

At this point, there are no By-laws or written formal structure.
