Individuals are being sought to fill vacant volunteer positions on the municipality's Together CK Grant Program Review Committee.
The committee, which includes five municipal staff members and a total of eight community volunteers, is responsible for reviewing grant applications and providing recommendations to Council on distribution of municipal grant funding.
Council allocates funds each year to assist groups to complete projects or hold events intended to benefit the community. Funds are distributed through the Together CK Grant Program – a competitive, application-based funding program that provides funds based on a variety of factors and overall project cost.
Volunteers are required to apply for a position on the committee. The committee's terms of reference and a volunteer application form can be found under "downloads" on the right side of the screen.
Successful applicants will hold the position for the term of Council. Applications will be evaluated based on the applicant's experience in a number of areas including volunteer work and committee experience.
Volunteers will need to be available for a minimum of twelve (12) hours in the new year to come to meetings to review grant applications.
