Grand Valley Trails Association

   About the Position

Impact Statement
The Grand Valley Trail was built and maintained through a large network of volunteer maintenance workers who ensure a strong and safe trail system. A volunteer Board of Directors administers this not-for-profit organization and therefore we would not exist if not for our enthusiastic volunteers. As a member of our team, you will help promote hiking, hiking related activities and events and also encourage GVTA membership.

The Community Coordinators will form a team of enthusiastic and active group of volunteers that will help us build a community of hikers. You will have knowledge of trails and hiking-related events in your area. For example, you will look for small, local businesses that can promote hiking / hiking activities or events where GVT can participate in promoting our association. We are looking for 2 Community Coordinators for each of our trail sections:
Towpath (Haldimand County)
Carolinian Crest (Brant County)

- You will identify opportunities to promote GVT in your area.
