Canadian Hearing Society is inviting applications/nominations for multiple Board of Directors appointments in 2017 and 2018.
CHS is the largest and leading non-profit provider of services, products, and information that remove barriers to communication, advance hearing health, and promote equity for people who are Deaf and hard of hearing in Canada.
Governing CHS is the CHS Board, a progressive, policy governance Board of Directors. Dynamic and strategic thinkers and doers with an open and continuous improvement mindset, and passionate ambassadors to CHS, this national Board of Directors sets the strategy and long-term strategic mission, vision, and direction for the organization. Collaborating very closely with CHS’ President and CEO, the Board supports and ensures CHS’ growth into a national leader by addressing the key economic, communications and health/wellness barriers facing Deaf and hard of hearing Canadians. Comprised exclusively of volunteers, CHS Board members come from across Canada and bring a wide variety of skill sets and business and community leadership experiences from the private, public and non-profit sectors to provide oversight to the organization through best practice governance.
With demonstrated sensitivity to working in a culturally diverse environment, Board members ideally bring knowledge of issues related to hearing loss and Deaf culture, and/or an ability in American Sign Language (“ASL”), Langues des signes du québécoise, (“LSQ”) or a willingness to learn. Additionally, a minimum of 50% of the Directors on the Board shall be Deaf and/or hard of hearing Canadians. ICD.D and D.Cir Directors credentials are highly desired.
If you are a collaborative, engaging and inspirational business or community leader, with vision and prior Board and governance experience, a track record of successful business growth in a leadership position combined with a desire to meaningfully connect with and support the community that CHS so proudly serves, this Board opportunity may be just the right one for you.
