City seeks volunteers for Board positions

The opportunity and challenge to help shape the direction of two local organizations is now available for civic minded residents.

With the City of Prince Rupert having recently placed advertisements for positions with both the Prince Rupert Library and Tourism Prince Rupert.

Those that are interested in applying for positions on the Board of either organization are asked to provide a written description of their skills and experiences, highlighting how they are relevant to the position.

Those that choose to serve will have many things to consider once they take their seats around the Boardroom table. There have been many challenges in recent years for those that have served in the past.

The City has recently had to hold the line on providing funding for both organizations, requiring those that volunteer their time to either organization to have to balance and redefine priorities for the many requests of both groups.

A task that requires a fair bit of thought on how best to use the limited resources that have been made available to many groups, owing to the City's financial concerns in recent years.

You can get a snapshot of the work of Tourism Prince Rupert here, while a look at the offerings from the Prince Rupert Library can be found here.

The deadline for applications for either position is August 8th, you can direct your letter of interest or seek out more information on the opportunities from the Corporate Administration Office at City Hall.

They can be reached at 250-627-0934 or by email at cityhall@princerupert.ca
