Carolinian Canada Coalition has undergone tremendous growth and realized many successes
in the last few years, thanks in no small part our current Chair, Dr. Gordon Nelson
and a strong board of directors. In spring 2013, Dr. Nelson's term as Chair will
be coming to a close, along with other directors of the Coalition. We thank Dr.
Nelson for his tireless efforts in creating a dynamic and growing organization and
now must look to future leaders of the Coalition.
Although the Coalition has operated in various forms since 1984, we were formally
incorporated in 2006 with limited director terms, resulting in a greater number
of vacancies on the board this year, than in previous years.
As you can appreciate, the search for new directors is key to our continued success.
The Coalition offers opportunities for people with Big Picture vision, a passion
for the Carolinian Canada mission, an enthusiasm for tackling major conservation
issues in the zone, an interest in collaborating across sectors and leading innovative
programs from Toronto to Windsor.
Directors oversee the mission, goals, objectives, policies, programs, and projects
of Carolinian Canada Coalition and sit as volunteers, who may or may not be linked
to a member group. Comprised of existing board members, an Officer Search Committee
has been formed to identify potential nominations by March, to allow time for final
consultations before the May Annual General Meeting.
We are casting the net widely for nominations. Coalition supporters, members & friends,
like you, hold a wealth of contacts across the Carolinian Zone, and we look to you
for suggestions of candidates that you may know or work with. Please help us in
our search for the next board of the Carolinian Canada Coalition!
If you know of a suitable candidate, please contact Michelle Kanter, Executive Director,
or the Search Committee through
