The combined membership represents the communities of Eckville, Water Valley, Clearwater County, Sylvan Lake, Rocky Mountain House, Penhold, Bowden and Red Deer. Their skill sets range from accounting to finance to business counsulting. The role of the Board is to establish our organization’s priorities, monitor our performance, and 
be accountable to key stakeholders, such as local, provincial and federal governments.
