A place for announcements, events, projects & opinions
Closing Date: March 5, 2022
It’s that time of the year again for the ETL- Recruitment! In addition to recruiting much needed support on the board, we’re also urgently calling for volunteer support to help broaden our operating hours while still adhering to necessary health and safety mandates.
We’ve had to make many (hasty) changes over the past year, and we can’t begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for those who have supported the ETL’s goals and overarching mission through those changes. Now, we’re looking for individuals who are willing to commit anywhere from 2-10 hours a month- commitment and comfort with remote technology (for meetings and inventory during shifts) are key. We have a wide range of roles, and we’re open to project-oriented volunteer partnerships- if you have knowledge or skills and free time, we’d love to connect!
As a Board Member, you will assist the organization with policy creation, financial oversight, fundraising, marketing and overall strategic direction. The ETL is an operating board, so you will also work monthly shifts at the library. This is a fantastic and easy opportunity to boost your resume and get involved with the community.
We’re looking for people who are passionate about sustainability and making their community a better place to be by encouraging the sharing of tools, knowledge, and skills in a welcoming, inclusive and creative environment.
Skills or experience in any of the following areas would be considered assets but are not required to apply: finance and accounting, fundraising, grant writing, human resources, marketing and communications/social media, board governance, use and maintenance of hand and power tools, library and/or inventory management.
We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive and accessible environment for our members and volunteers- This is a great opportunity for anyone who might not have direct experience, but is looking for a chance to develop valuable skills and board experience.
Commitment is key- During these uncertain times, we need people we can count on to keep the doors open for ETL members.
Successful board member candidates will be required to:
Volunteers are asked to work at least one shift a month (2-4hrs).
Work Location: Edmonton Tool Library, Bellevue Community League, 7308 112 Ave, Edmonton, AB.
For applications and questions: Applications sent via email are preferred. Please include a resume and letter of interest saved as one file. Please submit all applications to EdmontonToolLibrary@gmail.com.
We hope to hear from you Edmonton! Be well, and stay safe.
