Community Volunteer Connections is seeking individuals who have the skills, interest and time to support those principals which are key to CVC’s purpose to serve as part of our governance structure. We have opportunities for a broad range of individuals from community leaders to those new to boards to put their names forward to join the Community Volunteer Connections Board.
Become a Member of the CVC Board
Do you have a passion for volunteerism and the work they do in our community? Do you have experience with non-profit organizations or are well connected in your community? Do you lack that experience but have the time to devote CVC? Do you want to help us implement our new 3-year strategic plan? We are looking for you to join the CVC Board.
Commitment: The CVC Board meets every two months, with an additional planning retreat approximately once every two years. Meetings are in the evenings, from 6:00 to 8:00 at CVC’s offices. Board Members also serve on at least one Board Committee, with several additional meetings as required.
Benefits to YOU:
Board experience is excellent professional development. You will be part of a board that makes the decisions that will shape CVC’s future. The current board is finalizing a three-year strategic plan and you can be part of its implementation. If you are looking to help lead an organization whose efforts touch every part of the community, serving on the Board of Community Volunteer Connections may be the challenge you are looking for. Your efforts will help make our community a better place to live.
You’ll also be supporting an organization that services a broad spectrum of our society, from mentally challenged individuals, those fighting addiction and a whole spectrum of volunteer organizations working to make our community a better place for everyone. This includes organizations in the field of health, mental health, environment, homelessness, sports and community service to name a few.
Benefits to YOUR PROFESSION:
Bring your own experience to bear as we evolve along with the world of volunteerism. Help us implement our new strategic plan and help mold the future that keeps the best practices of volunteer management alive and well in our communities and helps volunteerism remain a mainstay of Canadian life. The benefit and satisfaction of being involved in something designed to make our community better is very satisfying.
