GPC is seeking candidates for its 2023 – 2024 Board of Directors

The GPC Board of Directors makes important decisions that shape the future of the organization and provides critical guidance and oversight by determining and monitoring the strategic direction of the organization.

We are looking to recruit one (1) board member to reflect the diversity of Canada and our membership, including ethnicity, culture, disability, economic circumstances, sexual orientation and gender identity. We are also looking to have a balance of directors from public, private, and other sectors.

Time commitment is a minimum of 4 Board meetings per year, 2 strategic planning sessions, serving on at least one Board Committee that meets at minimum 4 times per year, attendance at the annual conference and Excellence in Governance Awards ceremony. This is a volunteer role.
