Cooperation Canada’s Board is composed of 14 Directors, elected to represent the diversity of our membership. At our AGM in June, members will be called upon to renew the mandates of some directors who seek re-election at the end of their two-year mandate. In addition, members will also be asked to elect new members of the Board to fill vacancies. In preparation, a call for nominations is now open and members are invited to submit the nomination of candidates by completing this form by May 21.
In preparation for this call for nominations, the Cooperation Canada Board Governance, Nominations and HR Committee has reviewed the present Board composition and our Board diversity policy. While overall Board diversity is strong and reflective of membership-wide diversity, the Committee nonetheless wishes to share some areas where it feels additional representation would be welcome. Nominations that present one or more of the following characteristics would help to round out Board diversity even further.
- Representation from western provinces
- Faith community affiliation
- Labour movement affiliation
- Large organization
- Persons self-identifying as Black, Indigenous or a Person of Colour
The characteristics above are not requirements for nominations and it is acknowledged it would be unlikely for any one candidate to represent all of these factors of diversity. These are provided only as a guide and to encourage nominations which may assist in further expanding the diversity of voices on the Cooperation Canada Board.
Please note that to be eligible, Director nominees must be affiliated to a Cooperation Canada member organization.
