Description

Canadian Parents for French (CPF) is a national network of parents, volunteers, and advocates dedicated to the promotion and creation of French-second-language learning opportunities for young Canadians. CPF’s national board of directors is now seeking a volunteer to join the board as Treasurer.

Members of the board are committed to the importance of promoting language education and also to driving change. CPF’s national board is responsible for the governance and strategic direction of a network of provincial and territorial branches with approximately 30,000 members. We are seeking individuals from diverse backgrounds who are able to lead and innovate as the organization embraces new ways of advancing its mission in a changing political, economic and sociocultural environment.

The Treasurer works closely with a full-time staff member and external accounting firm that oversees all budget and audit activities. Some of CPF’s objectives include diversification of funding and ensuring long-term sustainability of our organization and its goals and activities.

We are actively seeking to diversify and expand the perspectives on our Board in ways that will extend its reach and ability to serve all those who call Canada home and wish to access French second language education. Applicants who have led organizational or institutional change efforts are particularly welcome to apply as are those who have experience championing equity, diversity, inclusion and decolonization in an institutional, educational or business environment.

Candidates should possess strong a financial background and a keen leadership and teamwork ethic, experience in change and risk management, along with effective communication skills.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Board positions are voluntary and include some travel. The time commitment will vary based on the board’s needs: several hours per month is typical, in addition to attendance at multi-day board meetings (approximately three times per year) for which all reasonable travel, meals, and accommodation expenses are reimbursed, there are a few shorter, online meetings. The Board is committed to accommodating the needs of board members to ensure that all members can fully participate.
