(Family Place (The), Milton - Bishop Reding High School, Licensed Child Care Centre)
|Comments||The Family Place is a non-profit childcare centre with two locations, one in Milton and one in Oakville. We are committed to the provision of child care for children, from infancy through to ten years of age, in a supportive child-centred environment, where discovery and challenge lead to learning and well-being for all.|
|Contact||Allison McLean, President of the Board of Directors, The Family Place; Email: email@example.com|
|Duties||We are seeking community members with one or more of the following qualities: proven entrepreneurship, legal experience, financial experience and training, fundraising, previous Not For Profit board experience, knowledge of governance, knowledge of childcare, and strategic vision. |
We are governed by a Policy Board made up of a maximum of 11 volunteers, a mixture of parents and community members. Our board meets approximately 11 times per year (once per month, usually the 3rd Wednesday), in the evening. In addition to the board meetings, all board members have the opportunity to participate in one or more committees, which meet every 2 to 4 months. The average time commitment for our board members is about 3 to 4 hours per month. Each Board Member commits to a two-year term, during which they are to attend all Board meetings, vote on issues, sit on committees and form the governance direction of the organization.
We are currently accepting applications from interested and committed community members for the position of general Board Member. If you have a friend or neighbour in the community who you believe may be interested, please feel free to forward this posting to them.
If you are self-directed, currently reside in Halton, and are interested in giving back to your community, we would love to hear from you. We are a group of like-minded people who can have fun while still recognizing the important task our childcare centres must do.
Are you interested in learning more or applying? Please send by email a letter of interest to our Board President, Allison McLean at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading: Board Member.
All communication will be kept confidential, and you will be contacted immediately with more information regarding the open positions. Please note that we ask for a minimum volunteer commitment of 2 years.
