Executive Council

​Between meetings of the Board of Directors, the business of the Association is supervised by OPSBA's Executive Council, which reports to the Board of Directors at each meeting. The Executive Council is composed of the President, First and Second Vice-Presidents, Past President, five Vice-Presidents, one from each of OPSBA's regions, and a Pupil Enrolment Vice-President from Toronto District School Board and Peel District School Board. These "Regional Vice-Presidents" are also the Chairs of their regions and are elected by the region they represent.

The Executive Council ensures that the decisions of the Board of Directors are executed and also provides strategic advice to the Board of Directors on such matters as long range planning for the Association, government relations and Association personnel matters.
