Board of Directors - Call for Nominations

Born on Time

 

CDF and CCA seeking Board Members committed to co-operatives and international development

Ottawa, May 1, 2017 - The Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) and the Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA) are looking for individuals who are passionate about international development and co-operatives to serve on the Board of Directors of a newly amalgamated organization, beginning in June 2017.

Since the formation of Co-operatives and Mutuals of Canada (CMC) in 2014, the international development division of the previous Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA) and the Co-operative Development Foundation (CDF) have been working towards an amalgamation into one international development organization.  Recently, CCA's member, CMC, approved this amalgamation in the form of a charitable foundation.  The new board of directors will now lead a charitable organization that raises funds for international development projects and plans and supports the delivering of those projects.

Candidates should have a strong connection to Canadian co-operatives and/or credit unions, as well as interest/experience in international development and a belief in supporting co-operative programs in developing countries as a means of reducing poverty on a sustainable basis. We are looking for individuals with skillsets in the following areas: business development, change management, communications, fundraising, human resources, leadership, financial management, risk management, marketing, strategic planning and governance and ethics.

Board member duties and responsibilities will include representing CDF/CCA to stakeholders and the public, careful stewardship of the organization's resources, due-diligence relating to programs and projects, and ensuring that CDF/CCA operates with ethics and integrity.

Application Process. Interested candidates should submit the following documents:

  1. Completed Application Form
  2. Cover letter and resume
  3. A letter of support from a senior executive or Board Chair of your organization

Deadline for Applications. The application package outlined above must be submitted in confidence by email to cca.apply@coopscanada.coop no later than 4:00 p.m. EST Friday, May 19, 2017.
