Join the CoDev Board
If you have been a member of CoDev for no fewer than 60 days prior to CoDev’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), you are eligible for CoDev’s Board of Directors who are elected at the AGM.
In 2020 CoDev’s AGM will be held on September 16th. Therefore candidates seeking election will need to have been members of CoDev on or before July 16th, 2020.
We invite eligible CoDev members to consider applying to the Board. If interested, please complete and submit the Board Candidate Form below.
The application is confidential and certain information is required, should you be elected, to submit to Industry Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency following the AGM.
Statements of Intent provided in the application will be circulated to the General Membership, and candidates will be asked to speak briefly at the AGM. We will also take nominations from the floor at that time.
If you are curious about joining the CoDev Board, but would like to know more before throwing your hat in the ring, we invite you to join us at 5:30 PM on June 15 for CoDev’s online Info Session for Prospective Board Candidates. To register for the info session, please follow this link.
CoDevelopment Canada is a Vancouver-based CSO that uses a solidarity model to facilitate partnerships between Canadian and Latin American social organizations. The Executive Director serves as the liaison between the Board Executive Committee and the CoDev staff.
CoDev’s Board is a working board that meets once a month (with a summer recess) in the Vancouver area to exchange with CoDev staff, discuss projects, establish priorities, set policy, coordinate events and confer on the direction of our organization. Board meeting schedules are set at the first meeting following the AGM. Board meetings are scheduled for 5:30-7:30 PM on the second Wednesday of each month. Note: current meetings are being held remotely on Zoom, and will for the foreseeable future during the Covid crisis.
Board members are expected to participate in at least two CoDev committees (e.g. fundraising, board recruitment, personnel, etc.), which meet as needed – usually a few times a year. Other commitments include participating in an annual strategic planning day; assisting with the organization and set-up of CoDev events; various outreach activities such as staffing exhibit at Canadian Partner and other various events; or accompanying visiting representatives of Latin American partners.
