All volunteers are invited to attend the Development Committee/Planning Committee meetings on a drop-in or regular basis.
This Sub-committee would need to act within the policies and general direction of the Development Committee and Board, but would have a great deal of discretion and flexibility. Members would need to be committed to swing into action as effectively as possible when a project is being planned and activated (within reason). They would be managing or directing our social media as an ongoing responsibility.
The historian volunteer would also be responsible for the information on the Society's historical website and communicating with members and the general public through social media, along with participation in planned events and personal interaction with visitors to Sovereign House.

Several special events are organized each year where volunteers are needed to assist with organizing and running the event. Events such as: golf tournaments, diversity day events, racquet club events, dragon boat races and most importantly our annual fundraising Stardust Gala.
The funds raised at these events goes towards providing programs for children in care, such as bursaries, camps, educational programs and seasonal gifts through the Children’s Aid Foundation of Halton.
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 on 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 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 child care centres must do.
