Board of Directors
As a non-profit charity, our Board of Directors plays a critical leadership role in helping Odyssey achieve its artistic mandate. Board members are asked to attend approximately 10 meetings per year, and to join a committee or get involved with a specific Board project. Members can expect a time commitment of 6-10 hours per month, for a two-year term.

Volunteers should have a university or college degree or equivalent experience and several years of work experience. Prior experience on a board or committee in a not-for-profit organization would be an asset. We welcome people of all cultures, backgrounds and experiences as we seek to reflect the diversity of our community.
