Become a member of the Board of Directors!

Board members must commit to monthly meetings for a period of two years (student board members may choose to serve a one-year term if they prefer). At these meetings, Board members carry out strategic planning, and ensure that the organization’s vision, mission and values are up to date and reflected in our programming and campaigns. Board members are also responsible for developing and approving the Centre’s annual budget, ensuring that working conditions of staff and volunteers are acceptable and that staff are carrying out their duties, and making certain that the organization is fulfilling all of its legal obligations. Between board meetings, committee meetings, and keeping up with communications related to board decision making, board members can expect to spend 8-10 hours per month on their duties.

As a Board member, you’ll gain valuable management and communication skills through Board trainings and practice.

You’ll be a valuable and appreciated support to the Centre’s staff and an important contributor in sharing the Centre’s anti-oppression mandate with the broader community.

Board members are elected at the Annual General Meeting each spring and must be nominated by at least 3 members of the Centre. For complete details, please read our Constitution and Bylaws.
