Director at Large (DAL)
This is a Board position that is used to provide experience to new Board members. It is expected that the person will assist other Board members in their tasks. It is also expected that the DAL will assume a specific Board position no later than 1 year after being in the role.
The Hike Director oversees all functions and operations within the Hiking portfolio, including being the main point of contact for all inquiries regarding recreation. This individual is responsible for ensuring all major club and community events run smoothly; organizing Trail Angels for independent hikers; ensuring the Hike Leaders are certified, trained, mentored and capable of leading hikes on the Bruce Trail. At least once a year organize a “Hiking 101” event to educate the public on the sport of hiking. A large component of this role is the management of a roster of nearly 80 volunteers. This role further includes reviewing submitted hikes and making revisions to the hike calendar; frequent correspondence with members, Hike Leaders, community groups regarding requests or inquiries that could impact the recreational use of the Bruce Trail, and regularly liaising between these individuals and the leadership of the various Bruce Trail Clubs. The Hike Director will occasionally work with Bruce Trail Conservancy staff on new and ongoing initiatives.
This is a board position that would assume at least a 3 year term.
Special Hike Events Coordinator
Organizes and coordinates several key hike events, such as the New Years Day Hike, Steeltown Stomp, Bruce Trail Day and the Iroquoia End to End. The person in the role ensures that all of the details are done to guarantee successful events. These activities may include seeking out other volunteers or hike leaders to be part of the event team, booking venues, promotion, badges, food, etc. We are seeking an organized, self starter. This role will take direction from the Hike Director.
Due to the extent of training for this role, we are seeking an eager, independent individual who is willing to remain in this role for at least 1 year.
This is not a board position but the incumbent is required to attend Board meetings.
There are ongoing needs in the areas of special events (such as our yearly end-to-end hike), hiking and hike leaders, publicity and fundraising. Please submit an online application to get involved!
