Description

Watson’s Mill Manotick Inc. (1979) (WMMI), is a private, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the operation and preservation of Watson’s Mill, a functional water powered 19th century grist and flour mill, and operating Dickinson House Museum in Dickinson Square, Manotick. The primary purpose is to preserve the site and promote awareness of the historical and its cultural significance.

The term length for the all-volunteer Board members is two years.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Volunteering is a way to hone your management skills, highlight accomplishments and develop other interests. It can also provide a foundation of future development or activity after a full career. As a volunteer, you are contributing to the community, and it can provide a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity.
How will the organization benefit?
Each year, the members of Watson’s Mill Manotick Inc. elect new directors to the Board of Directors. The Board seeks diversity within its membership, with a range of experience, expertise and perspectives. The Board will leave WMMI in a stronger position to plan for the future, manage risk, make prudent decisions, and take full advantage of opportunities. A Board that is sensitive to cultural differences is one that has a stronger capacity to attract and retain talented board members, as well as be in touch with the community needs.
