CALL FOR CANDIDATES
We're a governance board of volunteers who contribute our time and energy to provide leadership and commitment to the delivery of our mission.
Our goal is to bring on candidates that are committed to serving and participating in the growth of our organization.
If you have experience in public relations, marketing, fundraising, not-for-profit management, volunteer management, or risk management, it would be an asset but we're willing to consider all candidates from different backgrounds and experiences.
Applicants will be screened before being invited to attend meetings and stand for election by the general membership at the Annual General Meeting on September 23, 2020.
During the screening process, you will be asked to speak briefly about your commitment to volunteerism and highlight the qualities you think would make an ideal director.
