Alberta public sector bodies are now required to post online the names and compensation paid to:
- all board members
- employees who earn over $126,375
As an agency of the Government of Alberta, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) complies with this legislation by providing information about compensation provided to members of its Board of Directors.
Members of the AFA Board are not paid a salary for this work, but do receive honoraria for attending meetings. Board members are eligible to be reimbursed for expenses claimed to attend meetings. All other work contributed is provided on a voluntary basis.
Members of the AFA Board do not sign a contract with the Foundation or the Government of Alberta, but are appointed via Order in Council. There is no severance agreement, nor is severance compensation provided at the end of their terms or if a term is ended prematurely.
The AFA does not have any employees. Administrative, consultative and technical support is provided by the Ministry of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women.
