Do you want to make a difference? Would you like to learn more about your Board? Looking for opportunities to work with your fellow members? Each year, we invite members to put their names forward for volunteer opportunities with the Board. This could involve committee work, task forces or special projects.

We have a long tradition of member involvement and the Board of Directors rely on member volunteers to provide research and recommendations as well as assist in the delivery of special programs and events. Not only is this an excellent opportunity help the Board move forward towards attaining both short and long term goals, you will also have a chance to enjoy the unique closeness of spirit and degree of commitment between the members that comes with volunteering.

There are two types of volunteer opportunities:

  • volunteering on a standing or special committee; or,
  • volunteering for a specific project
