The Hamilton Children’s Aid Society is seeking candidates for our Board of Directors for a three-year term, with an option for an additional three years, beginning June 2021.
The Board of Directors of Hamilton CAS is committed to reflecting our community’s profile and needs in the way we are organized and the way we make decisions. We are dedicated to building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the community in which we live and are working toward a representative level of participation by racialized and Indigenous people in our staff teams. We are also reviewing the composition of our Board and looking at other ways of welcoming diversity and inclusivity in the agency’s governance.
As a colleague that shares the goal of advancing the well-being of others in our community, I am reaching out to you for help. We are inviting names of prospective new Board members and people who can serve in other ways such as guest presenters at a Board meeting, committee work or advisory support.
This year we are especially interested in engaging with leaders, young people and members from the Indigenous and equity seeking communities we serve.
We hope by the spring to begin considering names and contacting people who express interest. If you would like to volunteer your time, or have someone you can recommend, who could make a meaningful contribution to our community by participating on our Board, we would like to hear from you.
Thank you for considering this request.
