Eastern Caribbean Alliance for Diversity and Equality
ECADE's Board of Directors was voted in by a general meeting in February 2017 in St. John’s Antigua. Most representatives are drawn from a planning committee formed at an introductory meeting of ECADE membership in Saint Lucia in November 2016. Individuals selected by their local organizations attended this meeting. The general body elected, at ECADE's first general meeting, a Board of Directors to guide the new entity. The Board is representative of all quadrants of the eastern Caribbean as well as the diverse communities served by ECADE. The Board serves a 3-year term.
