Posted 3 months ago

Pekarsky & Co. is delighted to once again be leading the Board recruitment effort on behalf of YMCA Calgary. The Board is currently seeking at least two new Directors for appointment in May 2024.

YMCA Calgary is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Anti-racism, and Truth and Reconciliation processes. As part of this commitment, the YMCA recognizes that it is vitally important for their Board members to represent a cross-section of the diverse communities they aim to serve.

Board Directors serve an initial three-year term and most continue to serve two, two-year terms following the initial three-year term for a total seven-year commitment. As volunteers, Board Directors commit approximately ten hours per month to Board related activities, including preparation for and participation in Board and Committee meetings and participation in branch community events.

Based on the YMCA Board’s most recent skills and background matrix review, preference for the upcoming Board appointments will be given to candidates demonstrating strong acumen and strategic skillset in one or more of the following areas: (1) Accounting & Audit (CPA designation required); (2) Knowledge of, and experience implementing anti-racist, anti-colonial, Truth and Reconciliation, 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion or disability justice and accessibility initiatives in an organization; and (3) Human Resources / People functions. Ideal candidates will also exhibit past governance experience (including direct board experience or significant exposure to governance board environments as part of their work).

If you possess a passionate and demonstrable connection to the YMCA and the community it serves, bring a strong charitable spirit in support of philanthropy, AND exhibit one or more of the above noted preferred strategic skillsets, we want to hear from you!

To meet the required timelines established by the YMCA Board’s Search Selection Committee, the closing date for applications is Friday, February 9, 2024.
