Posted 6 years ago

YMCA Calgary (“the YMCA”) is a charitable organization driven by its mission to facilitate and promote the spiritual, mental, physical and social development of individuals and to foster a sense of responsibility within the community. Guided by four core values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility, the YMCA strives to offer quality programs and services that give children, youth and adults the opportunity to belong, grow, thrive and lead. The YMCA, serving the community 364 days a year, presently operates and oversees seven different health and wellness facilities across Calgary, is home to over 1200 volunteers, and handles over 2 million visits each year.

We’ve partnered with the YMCA in a search for new Board Directors, each member serving a three-year term. The Board plays a governance role in supporting the strategic vision of YMCA Calgary. As volunteers, Board Directors commit approximately five to ten hours per month to Board-related activities, including preparation for and participation in Board and Committee meetings and participation in branch community events. The YMCA seeks to develop a Board whose members possess and demonstrate a diverse combination of personal attributes, expertise, social capital, professional competencies and occupational background. Previous Board experience in the public or not-for-profit sector is desired for the role, as is prior experience in strategic planning, governance, capital asset management, information technology and investment management.

If you are committed to playing a leadership role in the community including supporting the financial sustainability of the organization, possess the preceding core competencies and are passionate about telling ‘the YMCA story’, please consider a nomination. Applicants may express their interest by kindly forwarding along a covering letter linking the requirements of the foregoing position description to your background and a current resume. In order to meet the required timelines established by the search committee of the Board, the closing date for applications will be February 2nd, 2018.
