The ECVO is looking for an enthusiastic volunteer with a passion for finance to join our board of directors. Directors are pivotal in helping steer the organization towards achieving its strategic goals and funded outcomes. Directors adhere to policies and bylaws in coordinating sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management practices for the organization, including approving the annual budget and ensuring the organization has sufficient resources to achieve its mission. The Board Director (Strategist) is a specialized position occupied by a strategic thinker who considers organizational needs and opportunities at a high level. This Director will bring a strategic thinking background to provide guidance to the organization as it navigates crucial trends and conversations facing the non-profit sector, including public policy, advocacy, and government relations.
Although we are seeking candidates with a specific strategic skillset for this position, the successful candidate will share roles and responsibilities with the remaining board directors. This includes: advising and overseeing policy and direction, strategic planning, annual reviews, and participating in committees, as required.
• Strategic thinker with experience supporting high-level strategic initiatives • A high level of administrative, organizational, and leadership skills • Experience working in the human services sector is an asset • Knowledge of board governance and/or experience serving on a non-profit board
Volunteering for the ECVO board is an opportunity to play an active part in the organization's mission to empower volunteers and non-profits across Edmonton.
