2016 will be another exciting year for CREW Calgary!

We are looking for committed, enthusiastic members who have the time to actively participate on the CREW Calgary Board of Directors during the 2016 term (January to December). This is an excellent opportunity to contribute to CREW Calgary and in doing so you will work with other talented people, raise your professional profile and develop your leadership skills.

Eligible nominees must be Principal Members of CREW, preferably with a proven track record as a CREW Calgary committee volunteer or with other Board experience. Provided a member is eligible for nomination, a member may be nominated by another member or a member may nominate herself.

• Secretary
• Four (4) Directors
