Circular Farm and Food Society Board Member Application
The Circular Farm and Food Society (CFFS) is a registered non-profit organization, founded in 2019, to establish and oversee the Sandown Centre for Regenerative Agriculture. We are the Long Term Operator of the Centre under an agreement with the District of North Saanich and are grateful for partial funding of our operations from the District.
The CFFS is a governance board, establishing the vision and mission for Sandown Centre, providing oversight to Sandown staff, and ongoing operational guidance and review, as necessary, generally through the form of sub-committees. For example, HR Sub-Committee, Fundraising Sub-Committee.
We are committed to providing equitable access and recognize we do not have the full range of diverse voices currently represented on our board. We particularly encourage those who experience systemic barriers to contributing to governance boards to apply. These include (but are not limited to) individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and/or LGBTQIA+; individuals who live on a fixed income or experience ongoing financial hardship; and individuals living with a disability or impairment.
The Board meets for 1.5 hours bi-monthly, in January, March (the AGM), May, July, September and November.
Board members are elected by the society members at the AGM, for a 2 year term. Board directors may stand for re-election for successive terms.
