Volunteer Opportunity – Governance Committee Member

Catalyst Community Developments Society, a not-for-profit real estate developer/owner/operator with approximately 1,400 affordable rental homes and 80,000 sq. ft. of community-serving space currently completed or under development across BC, is seeking an experienced not for profit professional to join its Governance Committee.

The Governance Committee is a sub-Committee of the Catalyst Board of Directors and is responsible for developing and recommending to the Board corporate governance policies and procedures that are consistent with good governance practices, leading a process to evaluate the Board’s effectiveness, nominating individuals to stand for election by Society members and, subject to Society Bylaws, nominating incumbent directors to stand for re-election.

The Committee currently has four members and is targeting five or more. We seek to have strong (non-Director) committee members who may be interested in eventually joining the Board.

Responsibilities

Meetings are held approximately four times a year, typically in the afternoon/evening either over video conference or at Catalyst’s office in Vancouver. In addition to these meetings, decision

• specific conference calls are sometimes convened to deal with specific issues that arise between meetings.

This volunteer, part-time governance role would suit an individual with a strong governance/not for profit or Legal background. If interested in applying for this position, please email your CV and a covering letter to julie@taylorryan.com.
