Board Of Directors

Community Futures Shuswap will have a Board of Directors of 8 – 14 people, who represent the diverse communities within CF Shuswap’s service area.


Volunteers who sit on the Board of Directors and Committees of Community Futures Shuswap represent all sectors of the community and bring with them their expertise in business, finance, education, and social policy.  The Board will undertake an annual review of the composition of the Board and will seek new board appointments to ensure the board reflects:


Geographic representation, and specifically, representation from Salmon Arm, Sicamous, CSRD Electoral Areas C, D, E F, and First Nations communities;


Economic sector representation, including forestry, agriculture, tourism, manufacturing, retail, research and development, communications and /or business services;


Community interest representation, including health, education, local government, the arts, housing, social services, labour, retirement, stakeholder groups, youth, and/or women.


The Board will seek new board members who have diverse skills and attributes, including financial knowledge, business acumen, strategic thinking, local knowledge, leadership, vision, and teamwork.


The Board will annually strike a nominating committee to undertake this work.  The Nominating Committee will commence the process in February of each year with the goal of having new board members approved by the Board in time for the AGM usually scheduled in June.


Board members serve for a maximum three-year term. Board members are limited to three consecutive terms of service (nine years), subject to their being re-elected or re-appointed at the end of each term. Board member terms are set to start and end over staggered years to ensure Board continuity.
