NOMINATIONS FOR BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Dear Member,

 

Do you want to help build a stronger Richmond Hill? 

 

Are you a member in good standing of the Richmond Hill Board of Trade?

 

You can make a difference as a member of the Board of Directors.

 

The Richmond Hill Board of Trade is accepting nominations for the 2019-2020 Board of Directors until Friday May 24, 2019 at 4pm.

 

The Role

 

The volunteer Board of Directors establishes the strategic direction of the organization on behalf of the members and ensures that the resources of the organization are focused on the mission and vision of the RHBOT.

 

Together with the management team, the Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that all RHBOT’s activities - advocacy, leadership, policies - assist members in their businesses and improving the quality of life in our community.

 

The Board of Directors is also responsible for vision and stewardship; selection, support and evaluation of the Executive Director; financial, legal and risk oversight; governance of the organization through sound policies, structures and procedures; and ongoing communication with members and leaders of both business and government.

The Responsibilities

 

Board members are expected to:

  • Be prepared for and attend a minimum of 8 and up to 10 Board meetings per year;

  • Actively participate on at least one Board Committee;

  • Attend other activities and events offered by the RHBOT

 

Additionally, Directors are expected to be available for regular email discussion and teleconferences should the need arise.  

 

The Term

 

Director at Large terms are for three years.

 

The Reward

 

The voice of Board Directors is important.  Participating in Board discussions and expressing your opinions is highly valued. Respectful consideration of the opinions of others is necessary.  Besides being part of the decision making process, being a Director is a wonderful learning opportunity to develop a broad perspective on issues affecting business and government. We strongly encourage prospective Board Directors to talk to the current (and past) Board Directors to seek perspective on their experience.
