Join our Board of Directors Today!

Positive Living Niagara invites expressions of interest from individuals who resonate with our vision, mission, and values to join our Board of Directors. We are in search of passionate individuals who possess the capacity, energy, and a collaborative spirit to contribute towards advancing the strategic goals of our organization, embodying a profound commitment to community building in every aspect of their endeavors.

Our vision at Positive Living Niagara is centered around creating an adaptive community that accepts and supports those affected by HIV, HCV, STBBIs, and substance use, and we believe that a diverse and dynamic Board is integral to achieving this goal. We value individuals who are eager to learn about and actively participate in non-profit governance, encompassing strategic decision-making, policy work, networking, and operational fundraising. Furthermore, we seek those with a genuine interest in discovering opportunities for growth through continuous learning, collaboration, and consensus building.

While we appreciate the importance of varied perspectives, we are particularly interested in individuals with experience in:

  • Legal
  • Accounting/Financial Management
  • Fundraising
  • Human Resources
  • Lived Experience of HIV and/or substance use

Positive Living Niagara is committed to building a Board of Directors that mirrors the diversity of our community. This inclusivity spans various dimensions, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, geography, socioeconomic status, and lived experiences.

Join us in creating a positive impact and contributing to a thriving community for all.
