Board Member - Transgender

Board of Directors

SPECTRUM Waterloo Region's Rainbow Community Space


   About the Position

Impact Statement
As a registered charity, SPECTRUM relies on a strong Board of Directors to govern the organization. The Development Officer is a critical member of our Board of Directors.

Description
Board members are invited to join Spectrum with lived experience as a member of an 2SLGBTQ+ community or ally is essential. All Board Members are required to be members of the organization by making a financial contribution of any amount or volunteering at least 30 hours each fiscal year (August-July). Board terms are two-years long, and no member may serve more than six terms.

SPECTRUM’s Board of Directors has adopted a mixed model of governance. Since the organization is largely volunteer run we use a modified Management Team Model in which members of the Board are tasked with some operational duties in the areas of human resources, financing, fundraising, and public relations. As the organization grows, we are moving towards a governance Board. Having prior experience as a Board Director would be very helpful.
