The Vancouver Dodgeball League Society (VDLS) and all its leagues (Vancouver Dodgeball League (VDL), Coquitlam Dodgeball League (CDL), Richmond Dodgeball League (RDL) and Wack Dodgeball League are governed by the VDLS Board of Directors. The Board is currently searching for new members to help strengthen both organization’s governance and strategic planning, and help move the organization forward for the next 3-5 years. We are especially looking for new members with a background in Law, Finance, Business, Non-Profits and Governance.

Purpose: The Board of Directors (BOD) are legally responsible for all VDLS leagues as a single non-profit organization under the BC Societies Act. They are in charge of developing the structures and strategies needed to help both to grow and flourish. The BOD are ultimately accountable for the decisions made on behalf of the organization. BOD members do not deal directly with the daily operations but rather operate behind the scenes in planning and governance.

Responsibilities of Board Members:

  • Upholding the organization’s Mission Statement
  • Setting the vision for the organization through strategic, and long term planning (3-5 years)
  • Setting the governance structure of VDLS and its leagues at their highest levels
  • Approving the annual budget
  • Facilitating the auditing process
  • Develop long term plans
  • Handling all legal and governmental issues
  • Appointing the Executive Director and reviewing their performance

Skills and Experience: Previous experience on a community or other non-profit board is an asset. Skills and experience in sports, law, finance, and/or governance would be beneficial.

Eligibility: This opportunity is open to the public. There is a preference for some applicants to be familiar with the larger dodgeball community, but there are also opportunities for people outside of our leagues to help and contribute to our mission.

**NOTE: Current volunteer execs may apply, but they will have to opt out of their current position   if accepted into the BOD.

Term Limit: 1 year term with options for possible renewal. Begins in February 2018

Commitment Expectations: Working hours may vary depending on the needs of the organization. Expected hours of work include 5 hours per month, including mandatory monthly meetings.

Timelines: Applications are being accepted starting November 25, 2017  until January 08, 2018. Interviews will take place in January 2018 (and possibly early February). Position start date will be February 2018

Location: Meetings and functions are primarily held in the city of Vancouver, with occasional excursions to other parts of the lower mainland. A car is not required.

Compensation: Meals, league fees, and some transportation related costs

Training Provided: Orientation and training related to VDLS and its technology tools will be provided by existing board members. External Board development workshops will be held occasionally.

Benefits of Becoming a Volunteer:

  • Be part of a unique, dynamic, and growing organization.
  • Provide strategic direction and input to a well-established non-profit.
  • Other perks related to playing in the league and organizational team building events.
