Interested in joining a group of dedicated people who want to live by our mission statement to be a collaborative community connecting to support the gifted?
Come and join us as a Director on the GCABC Board!
Directors of the provincial organization are elected at the Annual General Meeting of the Association and serve a one-year term. The next election will happen in September 2018. Most of our current Board members are remaining for another year of service, but we need more people to join us to move our mandate forward, and be responsive to gifted families in BC.
Our bylaws require a minimum of 3 directors, the president, treasurer and secretary and the board usually functions effectively with up to seven directors. Skills and experience in one or several of the following areas are considered important:
- General board experience
- Communication (in particular social media)
- Event planning and marketing
Directors are expected to attend and fully participate in 8-10 regular board meetings (2-2.5 hours each) during the year and on occasion volunteer additional time in various community events or other matters furthering the purpose, health and growth of this non-profit. Directors are also expected to perform their duties with care and communicate on a timely basis.
If you are interested in joining us to serve as a board member, please submit your statement of interest form to firstname.lastname@example.org
Need more information? Please feel free to send us an email to the same address. Or call Maureen McDermid at 604-315-3158.
Please note that specific roles, including officer positions, will be assigned by the newly elected board at the first board meeting after the AGM.
Please note that the GCABC receives all expressions of interest with appreciation. The current board is tasked with making selections from applicants that will best add to the board’s skill set and moving those selected forward to the AGM as nominees
