EMCN Board Recruitment – Financial position (CPA designated)

Are you interested in joining a dynamic Board of Directors made up of diverse professionals who support newcomers to thrive? Look no further!

The EMCN Board of Directors is currently recruiting financial professionals (CPA designation preferred) who have experience working in the financial sector overseeing large budgets and/or familiarity with the day to day account management of a large organization.

EMCN, is a centre that supports newcomers to call Edmonton home. We exist because setting up a new life in a foreign country is often difficult. For over 35 years EMCN has walked along side newcomers as they learn to speak English, find a home for their family, settle their children into school, find a job, brave frigid winters, and make meaningful connections in the community.

Our vision is a future where citizens walk with newcomers to bridge their transition into the community. To achieve this, we strive to create a society that is based on the dignity of every human being through four core values: Social Justice, Diversity, Compassion, and Responsibility.

The EMCN Board of Directors is committed to working with the Executive Director and EMCN’s spirited staff to achieve this vision. As a member you will be given the opportunity to learn more about the settlement sector in Alberta and help shape our community to be a more welcoming and inclusive place for all.
