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

Treasurer:

Last December, our treasurer Jodie Hansen stepped down from the board to fully enjoy her new baby.  Isabelle Jankovic stepped in as interim treasurer to fill the gap and she will be leaving the board after the AGM at the end of September.  We use XERO, 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 so this role is ready for someone to take over. We have also identified different roles for a financial team although there isn’t one currently in place.

Here is what we are looking for:

  • Be on the board for at least 3 months as assistant treasurer.
  • Must be a self starter and willing to take initiative without a lot of direction or reminders.
  • Some training in bookkeeping and/or accounting.
  • This very important role takes about 25-35 hours a month. This position is ideal for retired or semi-retired person.
  • Develop and chair the finance committee.
  • Be willing to commit to a two-year term.
  • We have developed a treasurer handbook specifically for our association and we highly recommend the new treasurer take the treasurer courses offered by FCC.

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

Volunteer Positions and Committees

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.
