CUI Board of Directors seeks two new Directors for 2015-16

As part of the annual renewal process, the Board of Directors of the Canadian Urban Institute is looking for two new Directors to start in June 2015. 

Directors bring perspectives and insights based on their varied backgrounds and broad range of experience to enhance the governance processes, decisions and practices of the Institute.  The Directors share demonstrated interest and experience in addressing urban issues in Canada and abroad.
 
Directors are responsible for the effective governance and oversight of the organization. They are expected to participate actively on the Board, attend the Annual General Meeting and sit on at least one Committee.  The current Board vacancies include renewable terms of 2 or 3 years.
 
Directors must be paid members of the Canadian Urban Institute and be aware of the CUI’s policies, including the conflict of interest policy, and must contribute to an annual assessment survey of Board performance.
 
In addition to a keen interest and strong background in urban issues in Canada, we are looking for individuals with skills or experience in the following:

  • Supporting revenue generation for the Institute, including grant applications to Foundations, governments, and private sector funders.

  • Governance of for profit or not-for-profit organizations.

  • Financial oversight or accounting – ideally with experience in the not-for-profit sector.

We welcome nominations from across Canada.
