The Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team Society (GOERTS) is seeking volunteers to serve on the Board of Directors. We welcome any nominations, but are particularly keen on recruiting those with experience in financial management or accounting to fill the vacant Treasurer’s position, as well as in marketing or communications, fundraising, or strategic planning.
Serving on the GOERTS Board is a great way to expand your network, give back to the community, boost your resume, and be part of an organization dedicated to conservation of Garry Oak ecosystems. GOERTS is a registered charitable society and is the primary organization responsible for guiding the recovery of Garry Oak ecosystems and associated species at risk. Garry Oak ecosystems are one of the most endangered ecosystems in Canada, and are found only on southeast Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and in two areas of the Lower Mainland. GOERTS consists of a consortium of volunteers, professionals, and public sector agencies and employees that work together to increase awareness of Garry Oak ecosystems and create and disseminate information about their status and recovery.
The attached document includes more information on the expectation of board members. Also attached is a nomination form. If you are interested, please fill out the form and bring it to the Annual General Meeting November 15th, at the Cadboro Commons, UVic.
