Are you a community-minded public sector executive with a track record in Ontario’s healthcare system? Or are you a communications, marketing or advertising expert who wants to use your unique talents to give back and help an organization do really important work? If so, we want to hear from you!
We’re looking for two volunteer board directors who are excited to share their expertise with us. If you are a dynamic, energetic and excited leader with experience in healthcare and/or communications, marketing or advertising, we know you will enjoy working with our really engaged board. Ideally, at least one of these positions should be filled by someone who lives or works in Simcoe County to help ensure our board reflects the areas we serve. As a member of our Board of Directors you can expect to volunteer approximately 8-10 hours a month, share your leadership, expertise and governance experience at the board level and sit on one of our committees (Audit and Finance, Governance or Quality).
Children’s Treatment Network (CTN) builds brighter futures together for over 25,000 children and youth with disabilities and other developmental needs. Some of our clients have lifelong, complex disabilities and use equipment like wheelchairs to move around, while others need therapy to help them speak clearly. While a personal connection to disability or developmental needs through lived experience is not a requirement, CTN highly values this perspective in all levels of our organization.
