Volunteer at FEI Canada!
Volunteer positions on FEI Canada’s policy roundtables draw upon members’ experience and expertise to shape and influence policy at both the provincial and federal levels.
National/Chapter Boards and Committees
If you join a chapter, national board, or committee, you will work with a group of member volunteers to promote and serve members.
At the chapter level there are opportunities in programming, sponsorship and membership, along with chapter board director roles.
At the national level you may serve on a number of committees focused on membership, programming, or sponsorship, and you may apply to join the national board.
Chapter Leadership Committee (CLC)
The Chapter Leadership Council (CLC) is comprised of Chapter Presidents and Vice Presidents, and is mandated to oversee the individual’s membership experience.
As a national council, CLC members exchange best practices for the administration, operations, visibility, and performance of chapters. The term of service is typically two years and corresponds with a member’s term as Chapter Vice President and President.
The CLC also oversees the efforts of the national Membership Committees, the Sponsorship Committee, and the Program Committee.
The CLC meets approximately five times per year, with two of these meetings held jointly with the Board of Directors.
Chapter Membership Chairs represent their respective chapters on the National Membership Committee, which meets approximately five times per year.
Membership Chairs are required to provide recruitment targets for the fiscal year to the CLC and are tasked with driving membership recruitment and retention programs within their chapters.
This committee approves and leads in the execution of membership marketing programs, reviews and provides input to collateral material (new member packages, membership surveys, etc.), and works within their chapter to ensure programming and administrative practices respond effectively to member needs.
