Make a Difference in Your Community – Join Our Board of Directors
As a not-for-profit organization, Fraserside is governed by a Board of Directors – volunteers from the community who share the mission and vision of the organization and are responsible for its well being.
Members of the Board come from different backgrounds, however all share a commitment to the goals of Fraserside and giving back to the communities in which they live and work.
Board members are responsible for the governance and accountability of the organization. This includes five key areas:
- Strategic planning (Fraserside’s mission, vision, and direction)
- Financial health of the organization
- Human resource planning
- Organizational operations
- Community relations
Positions are voluntary and Board members are not remunerated for their services.
As a Board member, you’ll have the opportunity to gain experience in governance and working in the not-for-profit sector, develop and broaden your leadership skills, and expand networking opportunities. Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to work alongside a committed group of people to fulfill a mission in which you strongly believe.
