Join our Team — Member of the Board of Directors

Volunteers contribute to every aspect and activity that happens at Community Waterfront Heritage Centre (CWHC). One of the most important aspects to the health and sustainability of CWHC is getting enthusiastic people to serve on our Board.

Community Waterfront Heritage Centre is seeking people who are interested in being Directors on our Board.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the governance and accountability of CWHC. Their responsibilities are to establish and maintain CWHC’s vision, mission, strategic priorities and overall direction. Directors attend Board meetings, which are held approximately eleven times per year, and an Annual General Meeting in the Spring.

Board members participate in deliberations by asking questions, expressing views and suggestions, making or seconding motions and voting. Board members volunteer to perform other duties for the Board; for example, serve as an Officer, undertake a special project, represent the Board on a committee or an external body, assist in fund raising, etc. The Board of Directors act as ambassadors for CWHC in the community.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Looking back over the year, it is hard to believe everything that the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre has accomplished in 2015, and we owe it all to the hard work and dedication of its volunteers, members, summer students, and community supporters. From the acquisition of the 1953 Dining Car, to substantial fundraising campaigns and special events; such as the Waterfront Festival and the Christmas Train, outreach programs, and development of the museum site, its exhibits and collection, it has been an amazingly successful (and busy!) year. Staff and volunteers look forward to the new year and are planning lots of exciting events and activities in 2016!

THANK YOU for your ongoing interest in and support of the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre!
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR from everyone at Community Waterfront Heritage Centre!
