Our Board of Directors and Managing Director Team are experienced, passionate, and dedicated to supporting sport and the recreational community, so that Whistler Sport Legacies will become a centre for sports excellence.
WSL is governed by six member organizations - the members include the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee, Province of BC, Squamish Nation, Lil'wat Nation, and the Resort Municipality of Whistler. Each member appoints a volunteer Director to the Board, and there are up to three Director at Large positions. There is no fixed term for a Director, and members choose who and how long a Director sits representing them. The Board ensures WSL’s mandate is achieved, and provides direction and approval of an annual Budget and Business Plan.
