We’re looking for

At Vancity, our vision is a transformed economy that protects the earth and guarantees equity for all. That means we use our profits to do what's best for people and the planet. Each leader on our Board of Directors needs to be committed to this vision, and eager to fulfill their governance duties as part of a financial force for change.

For our upcoming 2023 Board of Directors Call for Nominations, we're seeking prospective candidates who have strong communications skills, effective judgement, and respect for others — in addition to the other attributes and experience set out in our list of Desired Director Attributes and Experience and the focus areas for 2023.

As a member of our Board of Directors, you'll spend approximately 40 - 50 hours per month preparing for and attending meetings, strategic planning sessions, Director development opportunities, and community events. These meetings and events may take place during regular business hours, on weekday evenings, and/or on weekends. If you're passionate about helping build a clean and fair world, this commitment is an excellent way to pursue what matters to you, meet likeminded people, and help contribute to a financial force for change.
