Board of Directors

Mahmowenchike Family Development Centre is a charitable non-profit organization that is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of volunteer members who are dedicated to the quality of care and education provided by Mahmowenchike’s staff and are committed to helping Mahmowenchike reach its goals.

Mahmowenchike’s Board of Directors, in close partnership with the Executive Director, who is responsible for the day-to-day operations such as staffing, programs, parent and child relations, enrolment, and assisting with developing and maintaining our budget, strives to uphold our Mission Statement.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the sustainability of the centre and the advancement of its mission and its goals. This involves such activities as setting long-term goals, developing policies and procedures, financial planning/budgeting and ensuring the legal and regulatory obligations of the organization are met.

Thinking of Applying?
The time commitment for Board members is typically 1-2 hours per month on average, with some positions requiring a little more time.
The Board meets once monthly from September to June, but may meet during the summer months depending on the needs of the centre.
Past experience on a Board of Directors is not a requirement, but is an asset.
Board members are required to sign and adhere to an Oath of Confidentiality and Code of Ethics.
Ability to work as part of a team, knowledge of the child care industry, and experience with Human Resources, law, non-profit finances, leadership, or management would all benefit prospective Board members.
