We are currently looking for new members who share this vision and passion for feminist work and who want to work with us to expand and enact it.
The Coordinating Collective is similar to the ‘Board of Directors’ at other agencies and is responsible for governing the NDWC, making policy decisions, employing paid staff, strategic planning and finance.
The Coordinating Collective is a group of committed volunteers who make decisions and implement them through action in areas such as personnel, finances, membership, politics, media and outreach, fundraising, taking care of the house, community liaison, etc. We use a consensus model in all our interactions.
There are ample opportunities for learning and skills development through volunteering. Areas of learning include; communications, leadership, facilitation, consensus building, organizing, media relations, accounting and budgeting, conflict resolution, strategic planning, policy making, event planning, building maintenance, practicing feminist politics and more. If you have skills in these areas or would like to develop such skills, and you want to contribute to the feminist movement and the women of our community, this is the place for you.
Members commit to a two-year term. Participation on this collective involves a meeting held on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5:00 to 7:30. In addition, collective members take action on responsibilities set out in the monthly meetings, as well as participating in committee work and ad hoc meetings.
Currently we are looking to fill the following positions immediately: Co-chair, Treasurer, Co-secretary, 2 directors
