The GPC Board of Directors makes important decisions that shape the future of the organization and provides critical guidance and oversight by determining and monitoring the strategic direction of the organization.

We are looking to recruit up to 4 board members from among GPC members to reflect the diversity of Canada and our membership, including ethnicity, culture, disability, economic circumstances, sexual orientation and gender identity. Previous experience on a board of directors is desirable, but not essential. Time commitment is a minimum of 4 Board meetings per year, 2 strategic planning sessions, serving on at least one Board Committee that meets at minimum 4 times per year, attendance at the annual conference and Excellence in Governance Awards ceremony. This is a volunteer role.
