Sunshine Coast Community Services Society (SCCSS) is seeking volunteers to bring their unique skills and experiences to its diverse and dedicated Board of Directors.
For over 40 years, SCCSS has played a leadership role in supporting the wellbeing of people on the Sunshine Coast. From long term resident families and seniors to new immigrants and youth, our committed staff offer connection, counsel and practical tools to nurture an engaged, healthy and thriving Coast.
Working collaboratively with the executive director, Catherine Leach, and her team, the board plays a key governance role to ensure there is a sound strategy, effective risk management and financial stability as well as a strong, inclusive organizational culture.
“As a newcomer to the Coast, I wanted to engage with the community in which I now live as quickly as possible, to offer my skills and experience to help nurture and promote the wellbeing of people in this growing and vibrant region,” said Jan Holt, an SCCSS board member. “I felt that joining the SCCSS board was a means, not only to enrich my own life, but to become part of a dynamic organization that does so much to help the people of the Sunshine Coast lead healthier and, hopefully, happier lives.
“Since joining the board in 2018, I have found a welcoming group of committed, capable individuals who have come together to build a strong and inclusive culture. Each voice at the board table is valued and respected, and I feel I have found a place to contribute meaningfully to my new community, and to enjoy friendship and connection.”
As SCCSS seeks to embark on a number of critical initiatives, the organization is looking for volunteers who can bring their unique experiences, perspectives and voices to the organization. SCCSS’s board of directors welcomes interest from all backgrounds; individuals with financial skills and designations (CA/CPA, CGA, CMA), fundraising experience or legal training are currently of particular interest.
