The Jump Canada Board comprises representatives of Jump Canada committees plus three additional members. Jump Canada board members are elected by the committee they represent, except for the High Performance Chair and two members-at-large, who are chosen by the Board.

Appointments are for a two year term, commencing at the Jump Canada meeting at Equine Canada’s annual convention. Members may stand for two additional two-year terms, a total of six years. Rotation must be staggered to allow for continuity. After a period of one year off the board, members may be re-elected. Every attempt will be made to ensure representation on the board from across Canada.

The Chair of Jump Canada is elected from the board members for a period of two years, renewable twice at the board’s discretion. The Vice-Chair and Finance Committee Chair are elected from the board members for a term not to exceed their membership term. The immediate Past Chair may remain on the board as long as he or she holds that position. If adequate experience for the Finance Chair position is not available among the board’s membership, then a person may be selected from the Finance Committee. He or she will sit as an ex-officio member on the board.
