EBO Board Recruitment
Two of our five Board members’ terms are coming to an end this year, and we’re currently recruiting to fill those vacancies! EBO board terms are two years, with directors expected to attend monthly meetings (alternating between Board and Members meetings), and participate in at least one of our campaigns or community partnerships.
We are searching for people who are
passionate about creating an equitable, empowered and engaged community
"team players” who uphold our mission, mandate, values and founding principles
can participate actively, and make a two-year commitment to the team
For the coming term, we are especially welcoming candidates with experience in non-profit governance (especially ONCA), fundraising, and social media and other public-facing communications – but not exclusively, all skills and talents are welcome! We strive to reflect diverse lived experiences, demographics, and points of view.
If you are interested in learning more, please get in touch – we’re also seeking recommendations, if you can think of someone who might be a great fit.
As per our Board Eligibility Policy, any voting member of Engage Barrie Organization may put their name forward as a candidate for the Board of Directors. Interested members may contact the Board at email@example.com, or put their name forward at the AGM.
