Join the Board
As a not for profit organization, Thistleoaks is overseen by a Board of Directors whose primary responsibility is to oversee the strategic direction of the Centre and ensure its continued operations. The board consists of nine Directors, including four who fill out its Executive Team, who have each volunteered for a 3-year term.
For the 2019-2020 year, we have openings for two (2) Board Members who, once selected by the interview committee, would be confirmed and begin their terms at our Annual General Meeting in September of 2019. We encourage all interested parties to apply, with special consideration given to those who have backgrounds in Human Resources, HR/Employment Law, and/or Finance.
Expectations of Board Members are:
To attend all Board Meetings (9 per year with an average duration of 1.5-2 hours usually held at 6:00pm on the last Wednesday of each month, with the exceptions of July, August and December)
To attend the Annual General Meeting in September
To serve on the Board for three years
To attend any supplemental emergency meetings, as required
To complete work related to any sub-committee to which they commit, as required
To adhere to all by-laws of the Centre and legal obligations of a not-for-profit Board of Directors.
Members may not miss more than three meetings over the course of the year and may attend a maximum of one meeting remotely by video. Lastly, while not required, it is requested that Board members take part in some of the volunteer events that take place at Thistleoaks (Spring Cleanup, Fundraisers, etc.).
