ESSS has approximately 80 members (this may vary slightly from one year to the next) and holds its Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) in September. Membership fees are $5.00 annually and allow eligible members to vote on the Society’s business at the AGM. The Board of Directors is elected by the general membership at the AGM and Executive Officers are elected by the Board of Directors at its first regular meeting following the AGM.
ESSS relies heavily on its membership for input and direction. It is important for all individuals receiving support and their families to have a voice in the organization. While the Society circulates surveys and questionnaires, it is still critical that it have a strong and diverse membership in order to ensure all perspectives are heard and considered.
Members are encouraged to communicate with ESSS regarding services whenever they feel the need to.
