The GBFHT's Board of Directors is composed of 7 Family Physicians elected by their peers from the Georgian Bay Family Health Organization. These 7 physicians represent their call-groups from the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital, and are elected for a two to three year term. The intention of this time frame is to allow fresh input into the operation of the GBFHT on a regular basis, although it is possible for a physician to be a Director for two consecutive terms.
Board of Directors 2012:
Dr. Sohail Gandhi, Chair & President
Dr. James Lane, Vice-Chair
Dr. Karin Euler
Dr. Geoff Moran
Dr. Mark Quigg

There are also three non-voting Board Members who provide valuable insight into organizations the FHT work with on a regular basis:

The Board also provides regular input on timely issues through telephone and email exchanges.
The Board has been instrumental in providing guidance and support to the Executive Director, and ensuring that the vision of the GBFHT has held true to its original business plan while adapting to the needs and requirements of the GBFHT employees, physicians, and the patients cared for in the Georgian Bay region.
