About the Board
The Nine Circles Board of Directors is a policy-based board that employs a consensus-based decision making model. Directors are not actively involved in day to day operations of the organization but play a key role in developing policies and procedures.

Role of Directors
Directors will be expected to ensure the organization’s missions, values and purpose are upheld, ensure that the organization is managing its resources effectively, protect and enhance the organization’s public image, and support and attend events such as the Scotiabank AIDS Walk and World AIDS Day. Directors also select the Executive Director and review their performance.

We are looking for people who can serve a two year term, attend and actively participate in 10 regularly scheduled meetings and participate on 1 of 5 committees.
