Our Leadership

Board of Directors

Special Olympics Newfoundland & Labrador is fortunate to have an active board that strives to educate people about Special Olympics NL's programs.

Our Board of Directors has varied backgrounds and skillsets valuable to our organization, such as business leaders, lawyers, accountants and human resource personnel. These individuals work together to ensure that Special Olympics NL is moving forward. Our Board of Directors also takes on the responsibility of our major fundraiser every year - the Special Olympics Festival.

Regional Leadership Council (RLC)

Special Olympics NL's Regional Leadership Council provides vital guidance for our organization and movement, and SONL benefits significantly from the efforts of these valued volunteers.

Comprised of the Club Coordinator and Program Coordinator representing each of our community clubs, the council serves as the link between communities, the provincial office and SONL Board of Directors. This council plays an important role in the growth and development of our sports and programs, strategic planning, provincial policies, and volunteer resources.
