Call for nominations to Habitat for Humanity Canada's National Board of Directors
The Nominating Committee of the National Board of Directors (NBOD) of Habitat for Humanity Canada (HFHC) is accepting applications to serve on its volunteer NBOD to fill upcoming vacancies. We hope to receive a record number of nominations with a view to having a diverse, talented and dedicated pool of candidates to draw from.
There are up to four (4) board positions available in 2021 including a maximum of one (1) external board position. The service term for each position is June 1, 2021 to May 31, 2024 – a three-year term.
Diversifying the NBOD will be a priority in this year’s nomination process. The families and communities we serve are diverse in many ways. By better reflecting this diversity in the makeup of our board(s), we will increase our understanding of how to best serve Habitat families, and our ability to reach these families and the full range of volunteers, partners and resources we need to help them.
As you consider potential candidates to nominate for the national board, or for your own board, please make an effort to look for people who have a good skill set and a strong connection to Habitat, but who will also bring an under-represented perspective to the national board by virtue of their racial or ethnic background, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education or disability.
In terms of skills and experience, we are especially looking for qualified candidates who can contribute in the following areas:
- Marketing and Public Relations
- Technology Transformation/Cybersecurity
- Real Estate Development
- Community/Social Services
Nominations/Applications will be accepted immediately following the distribution of the Call for Nominations/Applications. The final date for receipt of nominations/applications is January 8, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
If you have any questions or comments or would to follow up on your application please contact Brenda Aranha at (416) 644-0988 ext. 384.
