Genesis House is seeking board members.

The board provides a solid foundation in a policy governance style from which the agency operates. Applicants must complete: Application form, Criminal Record Check (CRC), Child Abuse Registry (CAR), and Adult Abuse Registry (AAR). The nominations committee will review the application form and make a recommendation for the board regarding the applicant. If a vacancy on the board occurs during the year prior to the AGM, the board may appoint a replacement to fill the vacancy for the unexpired term of his/her predecessor. The replacement member would have full voting privileges.
