If you're considering volunteering on our Board of Directors, please contact us! We are always welcoming new Directors!
Volunteering on the PICCS Board can be a great way to get involved in children’s programs on the Pender Islands, and also meet new people in our friendly Board meetings.
The Pender Island Child Care Society is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Board is made up of parents and community members working together with a common purpose: to offer high quality, local child care and community programs to the children and families of the Pender Islands.
The general responsibilities of a Board Member are to set the organization’s direction and policies, including its financial, program, and personnel policies. We are accountable to the Society’s members.
We ask Board Members to make specific commitments to the following areas:
- Commitment by attending monthly meetings and lending a helping hand when needed
- Cooperation within the Board
- Competence ganined through a working knowledge of PICCS
For further information on being a Board Member for PICCS, contact the Chairperson through the Dragonfly Centre by mail, email or phone.
As well, please read our Board Manual for an in-depth look at Board responsibilities.
