Green Calgary Seeking New Board Members

Posted on May 6, 2022

Wanna go Green in 2022?  

Green Calgary is seeking community leaders with a passion for sustainability and a wide variety of professional skills and experience to join our Board of Directors.

The volunteer board provides leadership to Green Calgary in the areas of organizational direction, policy, strategic planning and fiduciary accountability.  We aim to attract skilled and committed individuals to help Green Calgary fulfill its mandate.  

What makes a great Green Calgary Board Member?

You’re passionate about improving our communities through the reduction of our environmental impact!

You possess a track-record of community leadership and active participation.

Prior board level experience with a non-profit organization is not required but a great asset, and a high degree of personal accountability and commitment are a must.

We're recruiting board members with diverse backgrounds, and have a specific need for experience in the following areas:

·         Legal

·         Accounting

·         Governance and Risk

·         Property Management, Real Estate (BOMA, LEED, etc.)

·         Human Resources

·         Environmental Policy, not for profit Programming and/or Sustainable Education

·         Financial Strategy: Donations, Grants & Funding

·         Media, Communication, Branding - this can often be paired with other skills, too, like fundraising 

·         Small Business Development/ Entrepreneurship

·         Digital/technology

The board meets once a month and each board member is asked to serve on at least one standing committee. Directors are expected to make a two-year commitment, but we figure you’ll enjoy this so much you won’t want to leave.

Green Calgary is a non-profit, registered charitable organization that has been addressing a wide range of pressing urban environmental issues in our city since 1978. In addition to providing information and raising awareness, our organization strives to provide the specific tools and resources that empower individuals and groups to make positive environmental changes.
