Interested in giving back and making a difference in the lives of those living with brain injury? Brain Injury Canada is currently seeking applications for vacancies on the Board of Directors.
Applicants with Board (particularly non-profit) or community organization experience as well as an interest in the advance of support and service, free of charge, to individuals and families who are living with the affects of acquired brain injury will be given preference. Additionally, it would be an advantage for applicants to also possess a background in government relations, in particular informed advocacy (the What and the How), finance, law, institutional fundraising.
All candidates should have a genuine interest in providing effective governance to Brain Injury Canada and its mission to improve the quality of life for those living with brain injury, and their families. Strong interpersonal skills and community connections are definite assets.
Although all interested candidates will be considered, the Board is specifically seeking candidates with professional background in finance and/or accounting. Another priority area for candidates is experience in collective community development/engagement, communications, public relations, and marketing. The Board’s objective is to ensure that a board with diverse and well-rounded skills and experiences effectively represents Brain Injury Canada. In addition, we represent Canada-wide interests; therefore candidates from all provinces are encouraged to apply.
The Board meets monthly via teleconference and members also serve on at least one Board committee. Applicants should be prepared to commit an average of 6 to 12 hours per month of their volunteer time. Successful candidates will be presented for election for positions commencing in November 2017 for a three-year term, with eligibility for re-election.
