Committees are essential to the operation of CPATH – a volunteer non-profit organization. Without the activities of our membership under the structure of its committees we would not have an organization. We value the commitment and contribution (however big or small!) of each individual, as their collective actions are what brings about change. Each committee is approved and sponsored by the board per the bylaws of the Society Act. Committees have two co-chairs and draw support from the general membership. It was decided in Toronto at our first business meeting that we would make every effort to have a CPATH member who identifies as a trangender person act as one of the two co-chairs. There is no defined limit to the size of a committee.
