Recruitment for new board members takes place every January. All volunteer positions are filled using an application process. Not all boards require a new member each year.
Most board opportunities are volunteer; however, a few do offer remuneration because of their responsibilities and required time commitment.
Shortlisted applicants will be asked to provide a brief biography and, if they are appointed as a Board/Committee Member, this information will be included in the City Council minutes as an introduction to City Council, the Board, and the citizens of Edmonton.
Most appointments are for one year, renewable for up to 6 consecutive years. Prior to reappointment, board members are evaluated. The evaluation criteria are outlined in Schedule 2 - re-appointment form (Summary of Evaluations for Members Eligible for Re-appointment) to City Policy C575C - Agencies, Boards, Committees and Commissions.
Applicants use the Taleo Online Application System when positions are available. Applicants must attach a resume plus 3 written letters of reference (a letter of interest is optional).
Please be advised that individual recruitment campaigns may have their own, unique requirements.
