You and your collaborator would need the maturity and objectivity to share your perceptions and suggestions. You would not have the responsibility for taking action to solve problems. That would be the job of the Board, in consultation with you. You would not be in a sort of "policing" position, but a helpful overseer to keep us on track with our ways of dealing with each other and our projects efficiently, respectfully, and democratically.
All volunteers are invited to attend the Development Committee/Planning Committee meetings on a drop-in or regular basis. You would need to attend various kinds of meeting on a rotation, to get a feel for how effective our communications are in all modes of communication including social media. Almost all meetings are held in the evening, in Aldershot area of Burlington.
You would be volunteering within the general direction of the Board, but would have a great deal of discretion and flexibility. We are doing our best to have every member with a commitment or duty to have a collabortor so that if a member became sick or was absent, the collaborator could step into the responsibility for the time of absence. You might have an acquaintance who you would be comfortable to collaborate with, if he or she would agree to join us.
We have deep roots in the 1970-1983 parent organization, and a restarted under our current name in 2012 - then circumstances that led to an almost entirely new membership. We are very democratic and informal but need to be aware of government requirements.

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.
