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 tentatively scheduled for September 22, 2020 in Toronto, Ontario. This is a call for nominations to fill existing Board vacancies at this meeting. Due to COVID-19, the date of the Annual General Meeting may change.
The Nominations Committee is particularly interested in candidates with experience and skills in one or more of the following areas: (a) quality, (b) human resources (designation required), (c) fundraising, (d) communications/PR. 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.
Priority will be given to those candidates residing in Toronto due to City of Toronto funding requirements.
Interested individuals may submit their candidacy or nominate others to the Board by submitting a cover letter and resume by July 17, 2020. 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. All interviews will be held via Zoom beginning July 20, 2020.
