Elections for the Friends of The OPP Museum Board of Directors

Notice is hereby given that an election for positions on the Board of Directors of Friends of The OPP Museum will take place at the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Members (‘Annual General Meeting’).

According to our by-laws, anyone who is currently a Friends member (or who is willing to become a member within ten days of election) is eligible to be elected to the Board of Directors. Each position consists of a three-year term commencing in May with eligibility for re-election.

Nominations and elections will take place at the AGM by the members present.

The positions are voluntary. As a registered charitable corporation, Board members are responsible for the overall management and direction of the business affairs of the corporation as well as leadership in Friends activities. Directors are required to attend as many Board Meetings as possible (there are 5 each year), and participate on at least one Committee.

In order to complement the existing composition of the Board, Friends is seeking candidates from the community with background in legal, financial, educational, fundraising or historic interests.

Anyone who is interested in standing for election to the Board is strongly encouraged to contact the Friends office at or (705) 330-4178 to be put in touch with our Nominating Committee. This will help ensure that interested persons are fully aware of the duties and responsibilities of the Board.
