At our Annual General Meeting on Thursday, March 28th 2013, Santropol Roulant members (anyone who has been a client, volunteer, staff or donor within the past year) will elect its new Board of Directors.
What is the Board of Directors?
Santropol Roulant’s Board of Directors is 9 members of the Roulant community who are responsible for overall policy-making, general governance, and working with our Executive Director. They meet about once a month, sit on committees (such as finance and audit, Human Resources, Strategic Planning) and try and come to as many Roulant events as possible!
What is the current make-up of the Board?
Three of the nine individuals that are currently on the Board are half way through their two year term, which means that SIX positions are up for election.
What is the Roulant looking for?
We are looking for imaginative, committed individuals who are 18 years or older, able to serve a 2-year term, and who can participate in meetings in both French and English. We especially encourage clients, volunteers, staff, donors, neighbours, and friends to run!
In 2013, in addition to its fiduciary and governance responsibilities, the Board will look to identify how it can best support Santropol Roulant as we continue to grow and increase our impact.
