Call for Nominations - Scouts Canada Board of Governors

05/11/2017 - 06/30/2017
Fellow Scouters: I am writing on behalf of the National Nominating Committee to invite nominations for the National Board of Governors for 2017-2018
 
We are seeking nominations for the positions of Chair and Vice-Chair - Strategic.  We are also potentially looking for new members (called Member-at-Large) for the Board of Governors, including at least one youth member.
 
The Chair of the Board shall act as chair of all meetings of the Board and all meetings of Scouts Canada’s Voting Members. Working closely with the National Key 3, the Chair plays an important leadership role as an Officer of the organization.
 
The Vice Chair of the Board - Strategic is responsible for the development of the strategic plan of the organization, and assists the Chair of the Board, and chairs the Board should the Chair of the Board be unable, for any reason, to carry out the responsibilities of that office.
 
Members-at-Large contribute to the overall effectiveness of the Board through participating actively in all aspects of Board business. As defined in the Bylaw, the Board of Governors is responsible for ensuring that the organization adheres to its Mission and Principles and has a strong strategic direction to guide its activities. The Board ensures that appropriate policies and procedures are in place to ensure appropriate fiscal and risk management. In addition, the Board ensures that an appropriate management team is in place to direct and oversee the activities of the organization.
 
For the at-large positions, the Board of Governors would especially welcome nominations of individuals with experience of expertise in one of the following areas:  development/fundraising, strategic human resources, property and asset management, law, and executive leadership.
 
Board members are expected to attend a minimum of four weekend meetings per year.  Board members also participate in committee work between board meetings.
 
For the above positions, you may submit your name for consideration or recommend others.  Each submission must be accompanied by a CV/resume and a written confirmation from the individual acknowledging that they are willing to serve and that they have an understanding of the position.  All submissions must be sent to Steve Kent, Chair of the National Nominating Committee (skent@scouts.ca) by midnight PST, June 30, 2017.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with me any time. I can be reached at skent@scouts.ca or at 709.729.1526.  Thanks!
 
Yours in Scouting
 
Steve Kent,

Chair of the National Nominating Committee
