The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation is currently seeking applications for volunteer membership on its Board of Directors. Founded in 1970, the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation is a registered environmental charity working to help protect and conserve the lands and waters of the valley of the Rideau River in Eastern Ontario.
The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation is looking for people who care deeply about the natural world and are willing to commit their time, effort, and skills to the Board of Directors to ensure the ongoing success of the Foundation.
Board members should be passionate about protecting and restoring our local environment, and able to assist in achieving the Foundation’s fundraising goals to implement conservation projects. Board members oversee the strategic plan, finances, and policies and procedures of the Foundation, and ultimately ensure that the resources entrusted to the Foundation further the goals of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority.
Board members are expected to attend quarterly Board meetings and also to participate in Foundation events. Board meetings are typically held on a weekday from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. in Manotick, Ontario.
It is hoped that candidates will bring a range of skills and experience to the RVCF Board including not-for-profit governance, strategic planning and visioning, fundraising, community contacts and more.
If you want to make a difference for the Rideau watershed and have personal and profes- sional experiences that could help our organization, please apply. Visit www.rvcf.ca for more details or submit a resume and covering letter to [email protected].
