Lend a Helping Hand to your Community’s Future
Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time and expertise to support Community Futures Stuart Nechako’s vision – "a robust, diversified economy and healthy, sustainable communities."
Community Futures Board of Directors defines and delegates rather than reacting and ratifying. The Board must work continually to define the direction and end results that the organization is to achieve, and to develop policy that defines the acceptable boundaries within which it can delegate the achievement of those results.
A total of 12 Board members can be nominated, and ideally will represent the region’s resident population, be leaders in our economic sectors, and be living in a number of our service communities:
Special Committees, Special Skills, Special People
