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.


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, decisionspecific 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
