Volunteer with Us!

Did you know that the Crescent Heights Community Association is run by awesome volunteers just like you?

We are currently actively recruiting for the following roles:

Board Positions

Please contact Kirsty Blair at president@crescentheightsyyc.ca if you are interested in a board position.

Volunteer Positions and Committees

Treasurer: Our treasurer Jodie Hansen has decided to step down to fully enjoy her new baby.  While we have an interim treasurer to fill the gap for the next few months, we need a new treasurer. We use a cloud based accounting system that is easy to learn and we have a professional bookkeeper and hall manager. All our books are up to date. We have identified different roles for a financial team which is still in development.

Here is what we are looking for:

  • Be on the board for at least 6 months and be assistant treasurer for at least 3 months. Assistant treasurer is our training ground for treasurer.
  • Some training in bookkeeping and/or accounting.
  • Take the treasurer courses offered by FCC.  We have also developed a handbook for our association.
  • Must be a self starter and willing to take initiative without a lot of direction or reminders.
  • This is a very demanding role that takes about 25-35 hours a month. A retired person would be ideal.
  • Chair the financial team that meets 3-4 times a year.
  • Police check is required – we will reimburse the cost.

If you are interested, please contact Isabelle at isabelle@crescentheightsyyc.ca

Membership Drive Coordinator:  Last fall we did a small membership drive for the first time in many years. What we learned is that we need someone to coordinate this effort. Since we would like to do it in May this year, we need to get started in January. Are you willing to take this on? If so, please contact us on the form below.

Web Master:  Are you experienced in WordPress? We need someone to manage our website, resolve technical issues and automate some of our processes. Working the Communications Director, you do not need to join the board for this position. Time commitment is intermittent depending on need.

Communications Committee: We have a new Communications Director and now we need some people to help get the word out on social media, edit our e-newsletter, create event posters and post to our website.

Engagement Committee: Help us to plan and implement a variety of projects to create a sense of place in the community.

Special Events Committee: Help us organize and run our major events. Except for Village Days, planning starts work about 2 months in advance of the event. Our current events are Crescent Moon Festival (late January) Community Clean-up (Spring), River Clean-up (Early May), Village Days (June), Stampede Breakfast (July), N2N Picnic (early August), Holiday Party and Market (Early December).

Event Volunteers: Each of our events requires many volunteers. Sign up to our volunteer list and we will let you know when volunteer opportunities are available.

Planning Committee:  Interested in planning issues in our neighbourhood? This committee meets twice a month to review planning concerns and applications.

Facilities Committee: Do you have a background in interior design or architecture? Help us plan our upcoming renovations.

Finance Committee:  We need skilled volunteers to join our finance committee. Areas include contracts, grant management, policy, insurance, budget and succession.  Most positions require a concentrated effort once or twice a year. Meetings are 3 – 4 times per year. If you are interested in joining this committee, contact  Isabelle at isabelle@crescentheightsyyc.ca.

Placemaking:  Got an idea that will make Crescent Heights a better place to live? Let us know!
