We are looking for dynamic individuals to round out the skills and experiences of our Board of Directors. Do you have governance skills that you would be interested in contributing to the Board of the Women’s Enterprise Centre of Manitoba?
The Centre is governed by a Board of Directors who bring with them a diverse range of skills and abilities. Their role is to provide governance and policy direction, focusing on larger issues, delegating appropriately and evaluating the outcomes using The Policy Governance® model developed by Dr. John Carver.
Our by-laws indicate that at least 60% of the Board must be individuals who currently own or who have had entrepreneurial experience. We rely on them to provide their entrepreneurial perspective and share their experiences at our six board meetings per year. In addition, Board Members are expected to participate in one of two standing committees, be available for the occasional ad hoc committee and attend networking events hosted by the Centre.
We are looking to add two new members with previous board experience to our talented board; we would welcome applicants from across the province. If this sounds like something you would be interested in learning more about, please email your resume to the Chair, Nominating Committee by May 15, 2020. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by our Nominating Committee and official appointments will take place in June at our Annual General Meeting.
