APPLY TO BE AN ALTERNATE ON THE CBT BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The District of Ucluelet is looking for an interested resident to serve in a volunteer capacity as an Alternate Director on the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust Society Board of Directors for a 4-year term.

What is the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust?

The Clayoquot Biosphere Trust (CBT) exists to support research, education, and programs that advance conservation, the understanding of natural processes in the marine and terrestrial ecosystems, and that promote the health of individuals and communities in the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Region. Established in 2000, CBT is the only organization in Canada that is both a community foundation and a UNESCO biosphere. The CBT works to strengthen the development of all citizens, communities, and the ecosystems on which we all depend, for a future we can all be proud of.

What does an Alternate Director do?

  • Bring vision, commitment, and energy to making a difference in our region.
  • Demonstrate eagerness to work in a consensus and team-oriented environment with a committed board, volunteers, and staff.
  • Reflect, listen, and communicate with the individuals, groups, and the community you serve.
  • Abide by the CBT constitution, bylaws, approved policies, and guidelines.
  • Bring knowledge, skills, and interest in one or more areas of CBT’s focus -- biodiversity conservation, sustainable development, reconciliation, governance and management (planning, policy development, finance, capital project development, human resources, communications, etc.).
  • Work closely with the District of Ucluelet’s appointed Director (Toni Buston), attend board meetings and volunteer on subcommittees depending on your interest.

The CBT relies on the vision and strategic direction of a committed Board of Directors representing a diversity of experience, skills, and interests supportive of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Region designation. The board meets approximately eight times a year. Meetings are held via zoom as well as in community throughout the region. Experience as a CBT volunteer is appreciated. Orientation and training opportunities are ongoing.

As a participating community, the District of Ucluelet appoints one Director and one Alternate Director to represent the CBT and its mandate to our community.
