For families, by families Participate in your MFRC

The Mainland BC Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) is seeking nominations to the Board of Directors

We are looking for committed individuals who want to contribute to the BC military family community in a meaningful way, and have a bit of time and energy to do so.

We ask that potential board members endeavour to make at least a 2-year commitment. Board members may be from Reserve Force, Regular Force, or veteran families.

As a governance board, the Mainland BC Military Family Resource Centre board of directors is responsible for providing leadership and oversight, and for guiding the strategic direction of the organization. The board also provides guidance and support to the executive director, who is responsible for day-to-day management of the activities of the MFRC.

Other Board Member duties include:

  • Fiscal oversight
  • Risk management, including legal/regulatory compliance 
  • Fund development support
  • Promotion of the organization to increase the profile of the Military Family Resource Centre in both the military and civilian communities.

The board typically meets 9 times per year (no meetings in December, July, August).  Meetings last approximately 90 minutes, and board members living outside of Metro Vancouver may participate via phone. The board consists of a chair, vice-chair, secretary, treasurer (the executive committee), plus up to 5 more directors for maximum of 9 board members.

In addition to the executive committee, board members also have the opportunity for to serve on other committees:  finance, human resources, fund-development, scholarship and strategic planning.  The executive committee and the finance committee are standing committees, while the others are struck at particular times of year or when needed.
If you would like to support confident, capable, and resilient Canadian Armed Forces families while at the same time, cultivate new personal and professional networks, we look forward to your application. Please submit your cover letter, resume, and evidence of an Enhanced Criminal Record Check to no later than May 17, 2019.
