Are you looking for a unique opportunity to make an impact in the Church Wellesley Neighbourhood? Well, look no further! The Church Wellesley Neighbourhood Association (CWNA) is looking for leaders like you to join our board of directors. We are a non-profit, volunteer run organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of everyone who lives, works, and plays in our neighbourhood, bounded by Yonge Street east to Jarvis Street and Charles Street south to Carlton Street.
The work of the CWNA is focused in the areas of:
• Housing and Development
• Placemaking (Parks and Public Realm)
• Heritage Conservation
• Community Safety (including the Community Crisis Response Network)
• Membership and Communications
Our board maintains active relations and meets regularly with elected officials, partner organizations (BIA, The 519, Progress Place, and other local service agencies), the Community Crisis Response Network, and various city departments.
The CWNA is currently accepting applications for open positions on the CWNA Board. All candidates for the CWNA Board of Directors must live in our catchment area and be members in good standing. We encourage members of equity-seeking groups to apply so that our board may reflect the diversity of our neighbourhood and our community’s unique needs.
As the Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be virtual, the election for open positions will take place immediately following the November 18, 2020 AGM. All members in good standing that are present at the AGM will be entitled to vote and will receive an online ballot via email following the AGM. Results will be announced on November 19, 2020 at 7 pm.
There are 6 positions that will be open for candidates at the AGM.
The CWNA Board normally meets once a month. In addition to the monthly board meeting, board members will be required to complete additional tasks between meetings, approximately 5-10 hours per month.
