Board Recruitment – YMCA Calgary (WR: 614)

Alberta, Calgary
Posted 2 years ago

Pekarsky & Co. is delighted to once again be leading the Board recruitment effort on behalf of YMCA Calgary. If you are passionate about the YMCA, have a deep and demonstrable connection to the Y and the community it serves and if you have at least five years of previous Board governance experience in the not-for-profit or public company sector, we want to hear from you!


This year’s Board recruitment seeks to identify five (5) Board candidates and will focus specifically on:

  • candidates with strong operations experience, preferably as a Chief Operating Officer and with a focus on enterprise risk and/or information technology;
  • experience working with children and youth and/or within the mental health sector;
  • Experience in a senior financial management position as a Chief Financial Officer or member of a Board Audit Committee


The time commitment involves approximately ten Board meetings per year as well as serving on at least one, and preferably two, committees of the Board. The committees typically meet six times per year, though this can vary depending on the issues of the day. It is expected that the YMCA’s Board Directors be visible in the community, attend various events throughout the year and participate in the annual two-day Board retreat each November.
