Advisory Board opportunity

CNIB Foundation
Advisory Board Alberta and Northwest Territories

Life is a beautiful, complex and wonderful thing. Life for people who are blind should be no different. To deliver on this vision and help us change what it is to be blind today, the CNIB Foundation (a division of Canadian National Institute for the Blind) is inviting applications/nominations for spirited, determined leaders to join our new CNIB Foundation Advisory Board starting in late 2018.

CNIB turned 100 years old in March of 2018. With almost a century of success under our belts, we want to take our work to the next level – smashing barriers and empowering our remarkable clients to live their dreams. The role of this new Foundation Advisory Board is to provide leadership to CNIB Foundation as we build a client-centred program strategy, strengthen our partnerships and engage more people than ever before in our work. Advisory Board members will be enthusiastic ambassadors for the organization and our mission, building our reputation with clients, partners and donors.

If you are a high-energy business or community leader who feels passionately about changing what it is to be blind today and want to play a critical role at a transformational moment in CNIB’s history, we want to hear from you. To ensure this new Advisory Board brings a diversity of perspectives, skills and relationships to the table, we are seeking representatives from across the Alberta and Northwest Territories cultural landscapes and from a variety of professional sectors. Applications are encouraged from those who currently live with sight loss.

To explore this dynamic Advisory Board opportunity in further detail, please contact Karen Love, Executive Director, CNIB AB-NWT by email karen.love@cnib.ca or phone 403-261-7210.  A detailed copy of the position profile will be provided to all qualified candidates under consideration.

PLEASE NOTE THIS POSITION IS OPEN TO THOSE RESIDING IN EDMONTON AND AREA.
