CALL was started in 2010 by a group of Calgarians whose goal was to create a not-for-profit, member-led organization offering unique, affordable lifelong learning opportunities.
We have grown tremendously since that time. From the original 30 individuals, we have exceeded our wildest expectation and currently are more than 850 members. Our continued expansion of Programs, Interest Groups and Lecture Series has shown how relevant we are to Calgary. This year, CALL received Charitable status from the Canada Revenue Service in recognition of the valuable service we provide.
Yearly, current board members complete their elected term and their positions become open to the membership. Many Board positions also have committees attached and responsibilities are co-shared. The volunteer Board of Directors provides you a unique opportunity to have a say in the ongoing development of this unique, vibrant organization...and to join a community of like-minded, knowledgeable and friendly individuals.
Take time to review the following opportunities that will be open up for election at the October 2018 AGM. Some of the positions require shadowing before the current Board Member leaves and all of our Board members are very supportive in getting a new member up to speed. Currently, the term for office is two years for most positions. (P.S. Being a part of the Board has proven not to have interfered with travel plans! We are a fluid and flexible group!)
Please call me for information on the positions or the name of someone you would like to nominate. If you know someone outside CALL who might be interested in being nominated, please ask them to communicate with me. Please contact me by June 15, 2018.
