Board Committees

The Committees are an integral part of Killam's governance structure as they facilitate effective Board of Trustees' decision-making by providing recommendations to the Board of Trustees on matters within their respective responsibilities. The Board of Trustees has three Committees: the Audit Committee, the Governance, Nomination and Succession Committee and the Compensation Committee. Each Committee consists of a minimum of two trustees, one of whom is designated the Chairman, as appointed by the Board of Trustees. A summary of the activities and responsibilities of each of the Committees is set out below.
