Program Director

GVTA Board of Directors

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 the Program Director, you will work with board members and volunteers to plan, setup and host events and meetings to build our hiking and trail maintenance community. In this role, you will also cultivate relations with public agencies including municipal and regional governments, the GRCA, and foundations in order to obtain cooperation and expertise for the GVTA. Strong communications and organization skills are required and previous experience organizing events is an asset.
