Position Board of Directors - Victoria Community Resources Society
Impact Statement Are you interested in developing or furthering your communication and leadership skills? Are you wanting to round out your resume with a position that displays both leadership and service? Do you want to work with a diverse group of people to make a difference in others' lives?
If so, this may be the opportunity you are looking for! We are a longstanding volunteer Board of Directors for a Victoria society looking for new members to serve our unique community. Since 1993, Victoria Community Resources Society (VCRS) has provided residential and community support for adults with diverse abilities living in the capital region. We believe all people, with or without disabilities, share the human experience together and that every human being is entitled to live a good life within his or her home. The VCRS board is looking for people who would like to make a positive contribution to the lives and communities of supported individuals.
Description The Board includes both family members of the individuals we support as well as community members. We are always looking to improve and possibly expand our services so are seeking individuals committed to learning, collaboration, and action. While we would consider all those who are interested, our current needs are for those with fundraising/marketing as well as legal skills or people interested in being a member of a dynamic society.
Training Details If you don't have any background in this area, we are willing to support you in learning more about community living services, history, and funding. More important than your background is the initiative and energy you want to bring to the position! We find that, on average, each board member contributes about 5 or 6 hours monthly. If you are interested in knowing more about this opportunity, please contact Brian@vcrs.ca.
