Dunnville Non-Profit Housing Corporation Requests Applications for Volunteer Board Members
The Dunnville Non-Profit Housing Corporation is seeking applications from residents in Dunnville or the surrounding area who are interested in joining our Board of Directors. The organization was created in 1988 by local community members with an interest in providing affordable housing to families in the community. The Corporation is the owner of 60 family townhouses in Dunnville, Ontario locally known as Thompson Creek Court. The Corporation operates its business under the Housing Services Act, Residential Tenancies Act, local municipal directives, and other sector-related legislation. There is flexibility; however, for the Corporation to develop local policies as required.
The Board of Directors is composed of community-minded individuals with an interest and commitment to affordable housing. The corporation is primarily a governance board with the responsibility of ensuring that it meets its financial and regulatory obligations to the local municipality and province of Ontario. Applicants who are interested in learning about community housing will find this volunteer experience rewarding.
We are currently seeking board members to serve for a term of three years starting September 27, 2021. Meetings are held in Dunnville, for approximately 2 hours at 1:00 p.m. on the fourth Monday of the following months: February, April, June, September, and November. A professional board package is mailed in advance to all board members for their review prior to each meeting.
Board members are required to have internet access and email. Interested applicants can request an application by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for considering this local volunteer opportunity.
