|Community Futures Nicola Valley|
The Board of Directors of the CF Nicola Valley is comprised of 8 volunteer members representing health, administration, labour, government, First Nations, retirees, private business and a City Councilor. Monthly meetings are held the 4th Wednesday of each month or at the call of the Chair. Each Director has the responsibility to either Chair a sub-committee or at a minimum, sit as a committee member. There are currently four committees: Merritt Employment Services, Governance & Board Development, Business Development & Economic Development. Capacity Building and Strategic Planning sessions are conducted annually and, if financially feasible, each Director is encouraged to attend seminars sponsored by industry leaders and CFBC or Pan West. CF Nicola Valley is involved in many community CED projects with specific emphasis on the Walk of Stars Society, the Rural Summit Committee, the revised Mountainfest and the Chamber of Commerce. The organization continues to support event driven activities and at any time over 100 volunteers may be working in the system.
All committee and board meetings are conducted in adherence with Robert's Rules of Order and during the year we will be working to develop a collaborative process in preparing a "Best Practice" manual. Issues are initially sent to committee for review and if approved, uplifted to the Board of Directors for approval. We are a policy board and do not deal with daily operational requirements. With an acceptable quorum, the majority vote is adopted.
