Are you interested in a seat at the CYPT Steering Committee??
As you will recall, the evolution of the CYPT Charter included the addition of 2 Voting Member at Large seats to participate at the CYPT Steering Committee. We are moving forward with recruitment of one of these seats at this point, and will recruit for the second seat in one-year’s time (so they are staggered in their membership term). As noted in the Charter, the Voting Member At Large representative intentionally brings into the conversation the vantage point of a Voting Member Organization, to assist with strategic planning at the Steering Committee. How to know if this opportunity is right for you:
- You are a Voting Member of a Voting Member organization with CYPT
- You are passionate about the vision and mission of the CYPT
- You are interested in being part of the strategic direction setting for the collaborative
- You can commit to a 2-year term as the Voting Member at Large
In addition to the above mentioned criteria, the Steering Committee is hopeful that a candidate will come forward with experience in equity-seeking work. This might be through lived-experience, or through working with diverse populations (particularly those who identify as Black, Indigenous and/or People of Colour). Members of the CYPT, as well as the Steering Committee themselves, recognize the opportunity to build in greater diversity amongst the leadership of the CYPT. Applicants who bring strength and knowledge regarding diversity and equity-seeking efforts, are particularly encouraged to apply.
If interested, please complete the application linked HERE by Oct 21st. The applications will be reviewed by Steering Committee at the October 26th Steering Committee meeting.
