WHAT IS THE BOARD?

The Board of Directors is composed of Kerrisdale Community Centre Society members.  You are a member of the Society if you hold a valid Kerrisdale Community Centre membership.

The Board is made up of 18 elected members (nine of whom are elected each year), the past-president, and up to five additional members who may be appointed by the Board.

WHAT DOES THE BOARD DO?

The Board determines the budget, directs programming, sets policies regarding operations at the Centre and responds to the Park Board and other community initiatives. The Board meets on the fourth Wednesday of the month from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm in the Centre.  A Park Board representative and staff members usually attend. Board committees report on their plans and activities at this time.

WHAT ARE THE COMMITTEES?

Board members are asked to sit on at least two standing or ad hoc committees of the Board along with other members of the Society.  Committee meetings are where the more detailed work of the Society is done.  Meeting frequency ranges from monthly to as needed depending on the Committee.

WHY JOIN THE BOARD?

Joining the Board allows you to learn about the inner workings of the Community Centre and influence its management, direction, and scope.  It provides hands-on, skill-building experience.  It is a concrete way to contribute to the community and meet new people.

It is your Community Centre — participate and make a difference!
