Board Member - Finance Specialty

20-50 hours / yearly
Board Members serve 3 year terms.
The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall governance of the Society. Board members may act as Directors at Large, with or without a specialty, or serve in one of the 4 Officer positions: Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer or Secretary.

The Board meets 6-8 times per year, and communicates extensively via e-mail. Board Meetings alternate between Calgary and Canmore. Key strengths needed on the Board at this time include Finance (with a potential to become the Society's Treasurer into the future), Human Resources, Fundraising and Marketing.

Certification or Education Required
An accounting or finance degree is required. Experience in non-profit financial management is an asset, as is previous service on a non-profit Board.
