Call for Nominations - Board of Directors

The Bernard Betel Centre (BBC) is a publicly funded agency that focuses on empowering seniors to lead active, creative, and healthy lifestyles, in a Jewish environment. Based in north central Toronto, serving over 5,000 seniors, we provide exemplary, multilingual educational, cultural and wellness programs in a safe and supportive environment to encourage healthy, active and creative living for individuals 55+.

BBC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors elected at the Annual General Meeting. Our Annual General Meeting is scheduled for September 17, 2018 in Toronto, Ontario. This is a call for nominations to fill existing Board vacancies at this meeting.

The Nominations Committee is particularly interested in candidates with experience and skills in one or more of the following areas: (a) law, (b) finance, (c) human resources or (d) quality assurance. Previous Board experience, familiarity with and interest in the Jewish community are assets. Fluency in Russian is also an asset. Board members are elected to a three-year term and are expected to attend six to eight Board meetings per year. For this year, residency in Toronto is a requirement.

Interested individuals may submit their candidacy or nominate others to the Board by submitting a cover letter and resume by June 30, 2018. Please submit to the address or email below. We thank all candidates in advance for their interest in the work of the Bernard Betel Centre. All inquiries will receive a response.
