The Board of Directors is accountable for matters relating to the Niagara Workforce Planning Board. Its primary responsibilities are as follows:

  • Ensure the by-laws of the Niagara Workforce Planning Board are updated and relevant.
  • Ensure the long-term vision and strategic plan are consistent with the values and mission of the Niagara Workforce Planning board.
  • Ensure operating plans are consistent with the long-term vision and strategic plan.
  • Monitor and evaluate the CEO as outlined in the by-laws of the Niagara Workforce Planning Board.

  • Participate in the production and execution of self-evaluation tools for the Board’s long-term vision and strategic plan.

We have a particular need for directors with a background in legal, accounting and community services (with emphasis on training and support in employment services). However, all applications will be considered. NWPB promotes and celebrates diversity among its staff and leadership. Directors will be expected to commit to bi-monthly board meetings with the potential for some committee work.
