Nutrien Wonderhub, Saskatchewan’s Children’s Museum, is adding new members to our Board of Directors. Our mission is to nurture creativity, curiosity, and a lifelong love of learning in children. Our Board members are energetic and adaptive professionals who are excited by the changes taking place in our organization as we continue to learn and grow. If you are passionate about the growth and development of children, the importance of STEAM education, and the joy of learning through play – we need you!
Expectations: The main role of the Board of Directors is to provide oversight and strategic direction for the sustainability and growth of Nutrien Wonderhub, in addition to board members being visible advocates, ambassadors, and enthusiastic supporters of Nutrien Wonderhub. Members of Nutrien Wonderhub’s Board of Directors prepare for, attend, and participate in 6 board meetings per year. In addition, each member is asked to join one of our three standing committees, which also meet 6 times per year.
Areas of Expertise: Our Board has identified the following areas of expertise as gaps or weaknesses in our current skill set:
- Experience, knowledge, and understanding of government processes
- Tourism industry knowledge
- Media relations knowledge
- Understanding of Indigenous communities
- Background in finance, CPA, or CFA
- Experience in or connection to the philanthropic community
- Understanding of Newcomer communities
Community Representation: Nutrien Wonderhub seeks to build a governing board that is reflective of the community we serve. To that end, we are particularly interested in recruiting Board members who are indigenous, new to Canada, living with disabilities, and/or LGBTQIA2S.
