The Board Member vacancy is in the position of Coaching Director, a position that provides for Society leadership and oversight across both the coach development and coach education portfolio.

  • Promote and encourage the development and circulation of instructional materials for coaches (professional development for coaches);
  • Assess the strategic merit in offering a formal provincial coach mentorship and coach talent identification pathway;
  • Serve as a member of the Board of Directors, be a member in good standing of the Society, and wherever possible:
    • Attend all FHBC Board Meetings;
    • Attend the FHBC AGM (held in the calendar month of February annually).

And through the recruitment and support of a Coaching Standing Committee:

  • Assist in the development of a strategy to recruit people into coaching;

  • Implement the mandatory coach certification levels, as appropriate;
  • Consider innovative ways in which to further the coach educational learning experience;

I would very much like to invite anyone interested in this role to return an expression of interest to with the title “Coaching Director” by a deadline date of November 15, 2020. Such an expression of interest should include a brief statement as to your motivation for consideration, your background, qualifications and/or experience in the field of coaching and what excites you about this opportunity.
