Landlord’s Self-Help Centre (LSHC) invites applications from individuals interested in volunteering to serve as a member of the Board of Directors and who possess advanced financial management skills.
LSHC is an incorporated non-profit organization operating as a specialty community legal clinic. LSHC provides information, referral and summary advice services to small landlords province-wide on a full range of issues related to residential tenancies, develops and maintains educational materials, tools and programs which assist the client constituency to learn and understand their rights and responsibilities as housing providers. LSHC also involves itself in law reform activities aimed at improving the regulatory environment for our client constituency.
The Board of Directors oversees clinic operations and is comprised of landlords and business professions who bring a variety of competencies and experience to create a well-rounded governance team. Members of the Board of Directors serve a two year term; are expected to attend and participate fully in monthly meetings; and serve on at least one committee. Directors should be prepared to contribute a minimum of five hours per month. We invite candidates who have a stake or strong interest in the rental business and are familiar with the services provided by LSHC. In this campaign we are seeking individuals with advanced financial management skills to fill two vacancies.
We invite applications from volunteers who possess advanced financial management skills (3-5 years experience) and able to contribute by monitoring financial policies and procedures; reporting on the use and management of funds to the board, funders and general membership; identifying new funding opportunities; participating in the funding proposal process; and overseeing the annual financial audit, serving in the role of treasurer.
We also seek applications from individuals with proven success and strong interest in the area of fundraising to assist with the development and implementation of a comprehensive membership and sponsorship program, and identify fundraising strategies to generate revenue to offset the current environment of reduced provincial funding.
We look forward to hearing from you!
