Our voluntary board

CHAA is governed by an appointed Board of Directors and administered by an Executive Director. The association’s educational, advocacy and collaborative activities are funded solely by fees paid by member organizations. The Association collaborates with other provincial and national health and housing associations to advance quality of life and care for Alberta seniors and disabled adults.
