The Board of Directors and all the committees have the Artspace Bylaws and Policies to guide them in managing the Co-op:

Co-operative Housing Federation: http://www.chfcanada.coop/eng/pages2007/about_1.asp
At Artspace there are 9 positions on the Board of Directors:
The Bylaws outline the eligibility for these positions, terms and duties of the roles.
Committees - our on-going committees are Membership, Maintenance and Finance Committees.
There are other ad hoc committees that are set up for a purpose and may only meet for a short period of time, or a certain time of the year (Gardening committee, Newsletter, Building Advisory Committee (BAC) are a few examples).
