Call For Board Members
The future is incredibly bright for Wanuskewin. We are on the path to becoming Saskatchewan’s first UNESCO World Heritage site. Our newly renovated Visitor Centre is a tourism destination with strong local support and regularly attracts visitors from across the country and world. Deep ties to the land can be felt as visitors explore the trails throughout the valley. The park is home to one of Saskatchewan’s conservation and spiritual bison herds that can be observed in their native prairie grasslands habitat. These experiences prompt reflection: what does Wanuskewin mean to
WHPA is not a federal, provincial, or municipal park, but rather a stand-alone entity under government legislation as per The Wanuskewin Heritage Park Act, 1997. The Wanuskewin Board of Directors meets quarterly to establish strategic direction for the organization through policy and goal setting. Dependent on skills and experience, Board members populate sub-committees. The Board would benefit from skills and expertise in these areas:
- Non Profit Operations and Finance
- Ecology and Arts/Culture
- Other related skills may be considered
This year, Wanuskewin is doing a public call for Board Directors to join our dynamic team. These positions are voluntary in nature and are a great way to serve our community.
Directors are expected to:
- Prepare for, attend, and participate in approximately four (4) Board meetings per year.
- Serve on at least one sub-committee and participate actively in the work of the subcommittee and its meetings.
- Act as a champion and an advocate for Wanuskewin in the community.
To apply, please submit an expression of your interest, citing previous board experience and why you want to join the Wanuskewin Board. Inclusion of CVs or resumes are encouraged. Apply to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 24, 2023. All Board Directors are required to provide a criminal record check.
