Corporate Governance

Board governance is a deciding component of organizational effectiveness and a crucial part of the functioning life of non-profit, public and private sector organizations alike. Effective governance ensures objectives are realized, resources are well managed, and the interests of stakeholders are reflected in key decisions. ABCRC is committed to following effective, transparent and accountable governance practices. ABCRC’s Board of Directors consists of representatives of beverage manufacturers. They include representatives from shareholders and the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission as the deemed manufacturer of all alcoholic beverages. The Directors, and non-director committee members, do not receive any remuneration for their time and talent provided to ABCRC.
