2023 Call for Nominations
NSCRT Board of Directors: 2023 Call for Nominations
The NSCRT Board of Directors is accountable for the overall leadership and strategic direction of the College. The Board composition is critical to its effectiveness and efficiency. The Board of Directors is seeking nominations from Respiratory Therapists, in the Active-Practicing license category, to fulfill one Director-at-Large position (Term: Fall 2023-Fall 2025).
The Board of Directors is responsible for:
- Exercising visionary leadership.
- Establishing values and goals; and
- Advancing the mission of the College.
A Director-at-Large member serves for a two (2) year term and may serve two (2) consecutive terms. Directors-at-Large accept direction and duties as assigned by the President or the Board. Directors-at-Large may be called upon to participate as Committee Chair and/or committee member or asked to join task forces charged with executing specific projects or programs approved by the Board. They do not have a specific Board portfolio (such as Treasurer).
Time commitment: 5-6 Board meetings per year (1.5 hours each) + AGM (1 hour). A variable amount of time based on role/responsibility/assignments is required in addition to attendance at meetings. Board and committee members are compensated for meeting time at a rate of $25/hour (prep time is not compensated).
The annual Board Competency Matrix identified gaps in Board composition in the following areas:
- Regional diversity – seeking nominations from outside of Halifax
- Ethnic Diversity – seeking nominations from Black-Indigenous-People of Colour (BIPOC) members
The Board is interested in increasing representation in these areas; however, all eligible members are encouraged to complete a nomination form if interested. No previous Board experience is required to sit on the Board of Directors. Board training for the successful nominees is provided.
For further information or to forward a nomination, please contact Noel Pendergast, NSCRT Past President and Chair of the Nominations Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org
