The Association of Neighbourhood Houses of BC (ANHBC) is seeking a member in the Lower Mainland for our volunteer board of directors for a minimum two-year term starting in June, 2020.  We anticipate that one director position will be vacant at the end of the current term.

Established in 1894, ANHBC is one of BC’s longest-standing non-profit organizations. Our vision is for everyone to live in a healthy and engaged community. ANHBC plays a leadership role in building healthy and engaged neighbourhoods by connecting people and strengthening their capacity to create change.

ANHBC is comprised of a network of eight Neighbourhood Houses in the Lower Mainland along with the Sasamat Outdoor Centre.

As a new member of the Board of Directors, you will join a skilled, hardworking team of 15 directors that follows a policy-based style of governance. ANHBC’s Directors are responsible for supporting ANHBC to plan, raise resources, develop a public presence, manage financial and other resources, manage risk, and ultimately to carry out the mission and mandate of the organization.  The Board meets monthly with a break over the summer. Meetings are typically held on the first Tuesday of the month from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.


We are seeking applicants who can contribute skills and knowledge in any of these areas, but especially in one or more of the following areas:


  • Human resources management;
  • Social purpose real estate development;
  • Housing;
  • Information technology;
  • Marketing and revenue development;
  • Legal expertise and how it applies to non-profit organizations.



Benefits of serving on the ANHBC Board include:


  • Strengthening your governance and leadership skills;
  • Expanding your network;
  • Learning from your peers and sharing your expertise;
  • Contributing to the health and well-being of thousands of your neighbours;
  • Being part of an international movement to make neighbourhoods better for everyone.


Applications are due by the end of the day on March 31, 2020.  See the attached “ANHBC Board Candidate Information Sheet” or visit our website for details on how to apply.
