376 Plains Rd. E., Burlington ON, L7T 0A4 - the office of Kay Fisher Realty. (Directions below).
We have a small Board (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer). At this time, we are seeking an appropriate Vice President. Our preference for the VP position would be a person with prior experience at a business level or an organizational level. 
 
Also, our experience is suggesting that each member of the Board should have a "Backup" person qualified to step in when circumstances lead to temporary or permanent absence from the his/her position. A "Backup" could act as an informal assistant to one of the Board members, as part of being prepared to step in if needed for a short time or permanently.  
 
Duties of the Vice President would include: Supporting the responsibilities of the President which include: preparing for Board meetings; Chairing those meetings; having overall leadership and oversight of all elements of the organization and its responsibilities as a registered Not-For-Profit organization; dealing with any developing or arising crises or problems in the ongoing functions of the organization; keeping the organization "on track" with the values, vision, and other foundational elements of the organization. The position of Vice President is an ongoing collaboration with the President.

- To join the Recycling Revisited Development Committee 
(Strong interest in the environment, community history or citizen action; We are looking for diverse members).  
- To engage in discussion, planning, advising, brainstorming and assisting with new projects. We have spent the last year (2018)producing a short documentary and a student level book about the citizen action in the 1970s and 1980s that led to Burlington being the first municipality in Canada to hire a contractor for an ongoing curbside recycling program. This organization was CCPC (Citizens' Committee for Pollution Control, 1970-1983) and we have deep roots in it. We also need to do some organizational work on bylaws and new procedures. 
 
We need to create policies and procedures for making the public aware of the documentary, books, database and new website. We also need to gain more funds for printing of them and costs of our projects. We need to decide what projects to choose in this "fresh start" after our production year, that would be consistent with our Mission of inspiring today's citizens to take action on their current environmental concerns. This is of course in the large perspective of global warming.

They would be managing or directing our social media as an ongoing responsibility.
