Ideally, these individuals will have proven leadership and board experience, strong organizational or subject matter expertise, strategic foresight and wish to be considered for election to the WCD Board of Directors.

Board meetings are held in-person 10 (ten) times per year and there are ad hoc meetings via teleconference as needed. Board Members are expected to also attend in-person the Planning/Review day and the Annual General meeting at the Rachel Browne Theatre. These are volunteer positions with no financial compensation.
