Hear Québec’s Board of Directors is continually looking for committed individuals who are interested in being directors and who believe in our mission, values, and approach. Our dedicated volunteer board is committed to advancing our mission by bringing each director’s knowledge, energy, and expertise to the table.
Hear Québec’s board functions under a governance model and is composed of 7 directors – the majority of whom are hard of hearing. Our visionary board provides advice and counsel to management and oversees policy and strategic direction.
We would love to encourage people to come volunteer with us before joining the board. We have several committees in which you can gain insight into the operations of our organization. We are currently looking for volunteers to join our governance, finance, fundraising, membership, and communication committees. If you are looking for experience or to gain knowledge from our board members this would be an excellent opportunity.
If you wish to meaningfully connect with and support the hard of hearing community and help advance our mission, please carefully read the nomination form on the right.
To become a Board Member, you will need:
- To be a member of the organization
- To fill out the Board Nomination form
- To fill out the Volunteer Form
- Send in your CV and cover letter
If shortlisted for the board, you will be voted onto the board by our members at our Annual General Meeting.
If you are interested in joining our Board of Directors, please send all of the forms to firstname.lastname@example.org. Someone will be in touch as soon as possible.
“Being a board member at Hear Québec has been a great experience. I was hesitant to join at first, but my belief in the organization and its cause encouraged me to do so.
Before becoming a board member, I was a volunteer at Hear Québec and helped with communication projects including writing of press releases and developing films for advocacy purposes.
Through this volunteer work, I got to know a lot about the organization and the wonderful, dedicated team behind it.
During my first days as a member of the board, previous board members were very helpful. After a few meetings, I was confident in my ability to contribute. After all, I was nominated because I know about the organization and because of my experience in the nonprofit world.
The best part about being a board member is having the chance to participate at the strategic level. I love attending all the board meetings because it is there where you can witness the passionate members sharing their ideas and giving their effort and time to benefit the organization.”
