Since the Annual General Meeting, new people have joined the Board of Directors and committees. We want to highlight the work of the various committees and what they bring to the Roulant and to the community in general. On reading the descriptions, note that the composition of the committees is for the year 2020-2021. Without further ado, let’s enter the Roulant’s birds nest!
Best Birds Ever
Here is the board’s Continuous Improvement Committee. The committee ensures that board members are well trained and that administrative practices improved. The committee is made up of Jon, Alice and Pier.
Sparrows are everywhere, see everything and hear everything, which makes them ideal birds to oversee the governance of the organization. In addition to making sure that the Board respects its rules and improves them, they are the birds in charge of organizing the AGM in the spring. The committee is made up of Mikaelle, Caitlin, Tara and Pier.
The whip-poor-will is a bird that can be observed in various Quebec forests and which has the particularity of making its nests and laying eggs on the ground. To protect himself, it can rely on its camouflage skills. At the Roulant, our whip-poor-wills want to protect the community by creating a safe space mainly through the safer spaces policy and by managing the cases received. This committee is mainly made up of employees, but reports to the Board of Directors. Jamiey (or Pier), Tara, Fiona and Caitlin are our whip-poor-wills.
The Puffins of the Roulant are the visionaries of the organization. They are in charge of preparing and implementing the organization’s strategic plan. It is suspected that the committee was infiltrated by a real puffin, when it was proposed that a fifth pillar entitled “Sand eels for the community” be added to the brand new strategic plan 2020-2023. The committee is made up of Claire, Lorenzo and Pier.
White Collar Egrets
Our last birds and not the least are our egrets in charge of the executive committee. Representing the Chair, the Vice-Chair, the Treasurer, the Secretary and Executive Director, it is the committee that sees to the proper functioning of the rest of the board, the committees, and of course, the Roulant in general. The committee is composed of Jon (Chair), Mikaelle (Vice-Chair), Andri (Treasurer), Caitlin (Secretary) and Pier (ED).
