CALL FOR MEMBERS

Campbell River and North Island Transition Society

The Campbell River and North Island Transition Society Board of Directors are interested in hearing from individuals who are interested in volunteering for a term on the Board.  This is an exciting opportunity to be involved with a well-established social non-profit society providing a variety of supports and services for women and children on the North Island.

Board Members of CRNITS commit to attend monthly meetings and participate in fundraising efforts. The time commitment for a Board member can vary, but on average is between 3 - 5 hours a month (including attendance at a 2 hour Board meeting). Volunteers and members of the community are also encouraged to submit names of those who may be interested in being a board member.

The Board of Directors meets once per month at the Society office at Rose Harbour to discuss Society business and upcoming community opportunities.

 

Major Responsibilities:

  • Adhere to the bylaws, policies and the mission of the Society as described in the Society’s documents

  • Organizational leadership and advisement

  • Oversight of policies and procedures

  • Financial management including approval and oversight of the annual budget

Expectations of Board Members:

 

  • Attend and participate in meetings and special events on a regular basis

  • Be alert to member needs and concerns that can be addressed by CRNITS mission, objectives, and programs

  • Become familiar with CRNITS finances, budget, and financial/resource needs

  • Every woman and child has the right to be free from abuse and violence

  • Every woman and child has the right to safe shelter

  • Every woman and child has access to support and representation when they need it

  • Every woman has adequate means and resources to make positive changes for herself and her children
