"Are You Looking for a Rewarding Challenge?"
Are you committed to strengthening French second language opportunities for youth in Canada? Canadian Parents for French is announcing a call for nominations to its National Board and we want you to join in on the action!
The National Board of Canadian Parents for French is responsible for the governance and strategic direction of a national network 26,000 members strong. We are interested in individuals with a genuine interest in furthering bilingualism, an awareness of issues related to French language learning, and who are willing to promote linguistic duality and liaise with our partners and stakeholders.
Does this sound like you or someone you know?
CPF’s ideal candidate will have prior community-based volunteer experience and knowledge of strategic thinking, governance, advocacy, change management and volunteer engagement. He or she will be self–directed, good at problem solving, and value lifelong learning. Candidates should also possess a strong teamwork and leadership ethic, along with effective communication skills. Experience on volunteer governance boards is also considered an asset.
Candidates for the National Board must be CPF members. Board positions are voluntary and include some travel. The time commitment will vary based on the Board’s needs; a few days per month is likely, in addition to attendance of all board meetings (approximately four times per year), for which all reasonable travel, meals, and accommodation expenses are covered.
Any current CPF member can nominate another person as a candidate or nominate themselves. If you would like to nominate someone, please ensure that you have their agreement, and then forward the candidate’s résumé to the committee chair, Jane Keith, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: Any nominee who is currently serving on a Branch or Chapter board, or who is receiving remuneration for work commissioned by CPF, will be required to resign from said position prior to election to the CPF National Board.
Deadline for receipt of nominations is May 13, 2016
