Growing the Board

Greetings to all members of the STMC community,

As part of ongoing succession planning, the Foundation and Ltd. Boards of St. Thomas More Collegiate are actively looking for inspired and talented individuals interested in serving on either of these boards or one of our standing board committees. We are looking for individuals who believe in our mission and are willing to be active participants in helping STMC achieve greater success.

It should be noted that the work of each of our respective boards is serious business. Operating a private educational institution in today’s economic and political climate is no easy task. These boards are ultimately responsible for ensuring STMC’s ongoing success and long-term sustainability. For that reason, it is extremely important that our collective members possess the variety of skill sets and expertise required to ensure effective governance. It is also important that our makeup reflect the diversity of the community that we represent. It takes all kinds of skill sets, personalities, backgrounds, and experiences to make for an effective and highly functioning board.

If you are ready to share your time and talents to make STMC a better place, we would like to hear from you. For more information on roles and responsibilities, please take a look at the documents below:

Link: Application Form

Download and fill out the above application and send it to board@stmc.bc.c​a to help us better understand what you could bring to the STMC Boards and your potential fit. All applications will be reviewed and potential candidates will be contacted for further discussion, and to answer any questions that you may have. We are limited to how many new members we take on at one time. However, as other needs arise from time to time, it is good to have additional qualified candidates available. The STMC Ltd. Board, in particular, has found it especially effective to have interested candidates gain experience on a standing board committee prior to joining the Board as a Director.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Ms. Sharon Kearney
STMC Ltd. Board Chair

Mr. Sean Tessarolo
STMC Ltd. – Governance Committee Chair

Mr. Jeremy Poole
