Our board

 

Community Futures Grande Prairie is a community driven, non-profit organization that is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Board is made up of local business people who 
bring extensive knowledge and experience of the area’s economy. Our Board members represent our region’s
 population and main economic sectors. The role of the Board is to establish our organization’s priorities, monitor our performance, and 
be accountable to key stakeholders, such as local, provincial and federal governments.

12 Board Members represent our local region.  Of those 12, 7 members are appointed Elected Officials representing the 7 municipalities in our region: City of Grande Prairie, County of Grande Prairie No. 1, MD of Greenview No. 16, Town of Sexsmith, Town of Wembley, Town of Beaverlodge and Village of Hythe. These members are normally appointed on a yearly basis; however, many members stay for their entire terms to a maximum of 9 consecutive years.. Our 5 additional Board Members are Community Members at Large. These members are actively recruited from the local region. Consideration is given to those individuals who own businesses, are members of their local Chamber of Commerce organizations, have leadership experience, banking experience or economic development experience and may have been prior CF clients. As with the above, these members are eligible to sit on the board for a maximum of 9 years.

Interested in becoming a board member or committee volunteer? Please contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions.
