Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association (AHPCA) seeks Albertans who identify as Indigenous to join its Board. We are looking for people with an interest in AHPCA's mission of comprehensive and quality hospice palliative care for all Albertans.

We are looking for energetic, proactive, professional individuals from across the province. Alberta is a diverse province and we are a provincial organization; we want AHPCA’s Board to reflect Alberta’s diversity of experience and geography.

If you are a family member with an experience of hospice and palliative care, you are welcome to apply. We are always seeking people with experience in governance, finance, fundraising, communications or event planning.

Applicants must be able to regularly participate and contribute to AHPCA’s board activities. Specific duties include:
•	Become knowledgeable about AHPCA’s activities and actively support and promote AHPCA’s mandate and vision
•	Prepare for and attend board meetings and committee meetings
•	Represent AHPCA at local events relevant to hospice palliative care
•	Become a member or chair of at least one committee (Communications & Membership, Finance, Governance)

Time Commitment
•	Board meetings are held four times a year. Online board meetings, ninety minutes, are held in September and March. During non-pandemic times, full-day in-person board meetings and board retreats are held in May/June and October/November in Central Alberta. Board members must be able to travel as AHPCA is a provincial organization.
•	Board members are asked to sit on at least one committee. Committee meetings, one hour, are held online four times a year.
•	AHPCA hosts Imagine, an annual full-day conference for hospice palliative care groups from around Alberta. Board members are strongly encouraged to attend Imagine, which is held the day after the fall board retreat.
•	Board members are encouraged to attend a nearby Roadshow and other events as they arise.
•	Board members serve two-year renewable terms.
•	One to three hours per month

Certification or Education Required
We want to hear from philanthropically-minded people with an interest or experience in the hospice palliative care world. You have the capacity and influence to make a substantive contribution from your existing skill set, whether it be through governance, finance, fundraising, communications or events planning.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
Serving on a non-profit board as a director is a commitment but a unique form of community service. It offers a chance to contribute to a cause you care about in a high-impact way, gain important skills in strategic planning, financial management and fundraising, expand your personal/professional network, connect with your community in a new way and teach your kids about community service. Most board members are strongly motivated by being able to give back to their community.
