Sustainable Concordia is growing and we need your help!
We have 5 positions available on our Board of Directors for the 2017-2018 year!
The Board of Directors is responsible for offering support and oversight to the organization by bringing individual experiences and knowledge. By participating in various committees, Directors can contribute to responsible and transparent finance practices, sound and flexible governance structures in a non-hierarchical and consensus-based environment, outreach and marketing of events and initiatives, and/or equitable and respectful human resource procedures.
What we’re looking for:
This year the organization has recognized the following areas in which we need the most support for growth:
Anti-oppression and diversity in the sustainability/environmental movement
Financial management and fundraising
Communications, specifically increasing our social media presence and engaging communities not currently represented at our events or programming
No degrees or special certifications are required – we value the lived and learned experiences of all applicants and encourage everyone to apply, even if you think you don’t possess those specific skills. As a learning organization, we welcome you to join our Board of Directors to gain experience in this type of work!
Join us at our Annual General Meeting on April 26th at 5pm to present yourself to the membership for voting.
The ultimate decision as to who is elected to the Board of Directors rests with our members who make the decision through voting at the AGM.
In the weeks leading up to the AGM we will host a special meeting of the applicants to the Board of Directors in order for you to learn more about the responsibilities of the position. Stay tuned for more details! Otherwise, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us through the Contact section of our website, sustainableconcordia.ca/contact-us/
