Board of Directors Candidate Application
The Information & Volunteer Centre for Strathcona County (IVC) has proudly been serving our community for over 41 years. In those years the activities of the Centre have been changed and modified but the vision and mission have remained the same.
Strathcona County residents will be encouraged and empowered to be engaged in their community in meaningful ways.
The Information & Volunteer Centre promotes volunteerism and supports not-for-profit and community organizations. We connect people to the most accurate and relevant community information possible.
The Board of the IVC is embarking on an exciting journey in 2018 and we are excited to extend an invitation to members of our community to submit their application to join us on the Board. We are looking for individuals who want to shape the role IVC plays in Strathcona County and take a critical look at the opportunities for further growth and development.
We believe our Board Members must share these qualities:
- Understanding of our community and its needs.
- A passion for what we believe in.
- Willingness to commit time for board meetings, committee meetings, planning meetings and special events.
- Team player – works well in a group.
- Someone who listens well and is thoughtful in considering issues.
The IVC Board is active and vibrant and needs members who are willing to engage our community and move our mission and plans forward.
In addition, we are also eager to find new board members who have specific skills that will add even more value to our board.
Are you someone who has specialized skills in communication, able to navigate social media for the purpose of promoting our programs and advocating for our organization? If this describes you we can offer plenty of opportunities to put your skills to work.
Have you experience in fundraising for programs and projects? Your skills and insights will be a valuable addition to our Board.
Advocacy is an area we would like to expand and if this is your interest we will keep a place at our Board table for you.
