Volunteer and work opportunities for older adults

Board Member
Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council
The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council (ESCC) is currently recruiting to fill positions on our Board of Directors. We are seeking candidates with experience on boards and committees as well as knowledge or experience with diversity (relating to the Aboriginal community, the immigrant community, or the LGBTQ community). We are focusing on the area of diversity as timely and important. We would like to establish better connections as guidance in how services to diverse seniors could be enhanced in the sector.
Serving on the ESCC Board of Directors is an opportunity to get involved in the broad issues of the sector and to contribute to making Edmonton an Age Friendly city.
Our nominating committee will contact interested individuals and arrange a meeting to answer any questions they may have and to provide information about ESCC and our Board. If you are interested in joining our Board of Directors, return the nomination form to ESCC by March 16.
