Call for steering committee members

The Columbia Basin Watershed Network invites residents of the Columbia Basin to apply to be part of their volunteer steering committee.

Are you a community champion inspired by water? Are you looking to meet and collaborate with new people, learn more about water stewardship and give back to communities of the Columbia Basin?

The Columbia Basin Watershed Network (CBWN) invites residents of the Columbia Basin to apply to be part of their volunteer steering committee. The CBWN works to support water stewardship groups by sharing knowledge, building skills, and facilitating community action in the Columbia Basin. It also promotes water literacy, effective communication and networking amongst all sectors including communities, watershed groups, public agencies, First Nations, academic institutions, local governments and industry.

“The current Steering Committee is made up of individuals who bring multiple perspectives, depth of knowledge and expertise, and a strong willingness to collaborate in meeting the Columbia Basin Watershed Network’s strategic framework and priorities”, said Katie Burles, network coordinator. “Interested individuals need to have an invested interest in encouraging a water stewardship ethic in the Columbia Basin”.

Steering Committee members must have a readiness to commit 5-10 hours per month to take an active volunteer role in CBWN related meetings, events, and other projects. For the 2014-2016 term we have instated an optional steering committee member mentoring program which will prepare and support new members to engage productively early in their tenure.

Applications are due Feb. 15th, 2014. For more information on the application process and Steering Committee Terms of Reference, go to www.cbwn.ca or email cbwn.coordinator@gmail.com
