Board of Directors

Kerby seeks board members

Kerby Centre is a renowned organization operating in Calgary & Medicine Hat, where it runs the Veiner Centre, committed to support­ing older adults to live well in their community.

We serve seniors through adult ser­vices, information, events, and program­ming. Kerby Centre is a not-for-profit organiza­tion recently governed by an eight-person Board of Directors and we are looking to increase that number.

In 2022, Kerby Centre’s board is seek­ing to add three to five Directors, as well as three to five committee members that can offer expertise on specific committees. As a com­mittee member there is not a requirement to be­come Directors at a later date, but that could be option. Kerby Centre has no age restrictions for these positions.

The Kerby Centre Board of Directors is a governance & policy board. Board meetings are typically held every second month. As stew­ards for the organiza­tion, Directors provide strategic direction to staff, regularly review the organization’s fi­nancial statements, and approve the an­nual budget. In addi­tion, Directors are a key part of the public face of the organiza­tion and occasionally represent Kerby Centre at events. Committees looking for members: Fund Development, Communications & Marketing; Finance and Audit;. Committee meetings are held as re­quired normally 4-6 per year.
