Opimian Board of Directors Committee Mandates

 

CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

To all the members,

Opimian is calling for nominations of qualified candidates to fill several positions on the Board of Directors effective at the Annual General Meeting to be held in June 2020.

The Nominations Committee invites you to review the Call for Expressions of Interest and, if interested, consider applying for a position on the Board of Directors.

Opimian believes in diversity and values the benefits that diversity can bring to its Board of Directors. The Nominations Committee wishes to increase the representation of women on the Board by encouraging female members to take an active role within the Club by submitting their candidacy.

The list of desired experience and skills is included in the Call for Expressions of Interest. While we consider all of the skills to be an asset, this year we are particularly interested in members with experience in Corporate Governance, Risk Management, Marketing and Technology. Our selection of candidates, however, is certainly not exclusive to those four areas and we welcome all strong and interested candidates that meet the criteria to apply.

Please note that applications will be accepted up until end of day on Wednesday, April 8, 2020.

Regards,

Neil McClughan
Chair Nominations Committee
