CHHA is the leading consumer advocacy organization representing the needs of the nearly 4-million Canadians living with hearing loss. CHHA is seeking applications/nominations for its National Board of Directors. With a network from coast-to-coast-to coast, CHHA works cooperatively with professionals, service providers, government and other agencies to provide life enhancing information, support and advocacy.

There are many reasons why people join boards, for some it’s to give back, for others it’s to build their network and skills, but for many it’s because they have a passion for the cause and want to make the world a better place. 

A significant amount of positive change is currently taking place at CHHA. For example, we are going through a very exciting transformation and redefining ourselves today for the future. We depend on the diverse skill set and expertise of our board members to help carry this organization through this transformation so that we will be able to service the needs of all people with hearing loss for generations to come.  
 
CHHA is governed by a progressive policy oriented National Board of Directors, who are dynamic, strategic thinkers and doers with an open and continuous improvement mindset, as well as passionate ambassadors for CHHA. Collaborating with the National Executive Director, the National Board of Directors sets the strategy and long-term mission, vision, and direction for the organization. Comprised exclusively of volunteers, CHHA board members come from across Canada and bring a wide variety of skill sets and business and community leadership experiences from the private, public and non-profit sectors.

If you are a collaborative, engaging and inspirational business or community leader, with vision and prior board and governance experience combined with a desire to meaningfully connect with and support the community that CHHA proudly serves, this opportunity may be just the right one for you.
Nominations close April 5, 2019 at 5:00 pm ET. If you are interested in exploring this exciting opportunity, please email nominations@chha.ca for further information. We look forward to hearing from you.
