The CBBF is overseen by a Governing Board of five members, who are elected each year during the annual general meeting. Every CBBF member has a chance to vote for, and to be voted onto, the Governing Board.

The elections take place by secret ballot without candidacies, nominations or campaigning.  Three of the members of the board this year are from the Ottawa region. The 2011/2012 CBBF elected Board Members are as follows: Duncan Hanks, Francois Couillard, Nousha Ram, Valerie Davis, Wesley Gee.

The members of the new CBBF Board will be serving the CBBF members and the rest of the CBBF network for the next twelve months. The CBBF will continue to support activities that nurture sustainable business ethics and moral leadership in business and civil Society in the National Capital Region of Ottawa and Greater Toronto Area.
