Board of directors



The Minnesota Companion Bird Association was founded in 1977. We are governed by a six to ten member Board of Directors consisting of a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and three to six Directors. Elections are held every November to determine the four executive positions and one half of the Directors. In addition, Committee Chairpersons are appointed by the Board to head our many specialized committees. 

The Board meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. via Zoom.

All members are welcome to attend Board meetings. Members are asked to reserve agenda time in advance if they would like to address the Board.
