Vacant Board Positions | Strathcona Community League

Posted by & filed under Board, SCL.


Strathcona is a busy neighbourhood, with many festival and events that are part of our community. It is a rapidly changing community with many new development decisions being made that shape the look and feel of where we live. Our commercial districts are rapidly changing which also have impact on our community. The Strathcona Community League is active in providing social, recreational and planning decisions for our community.  We are currently also involved in some exciting projects such as our neighborhood renewal and the revisioning of our league facility. We are seeking volunteers interested in being involved in all of these areas of decision making.

For those interested in helping our community, becoming an active and engaged neighbourhood and gaining some non-profit board experience we have some vacancies that can be filled on our board, and within committees. Elections will be held during our AGM, November 20
