London Environmental Network - Board of Director Call for Nominations
The London Environmental Network (LEN) connects local organizations and community groups working with an environmental focus. We work to build and support strong, resilient organizations so they can be more effective at creating environmental change. The London Environmental Network also acts as a doorway into the environmental sector so Londoners can learn about environmental efforts in our city and how to get involved.
We believe that by cultivating a strong, cohesive and empowered environmental community, we will engage more Londoners in growing a healthy, sustainable city.
The LEN Board of Directors oversees the governance and strategic direction of the Network. They meet regularly to provide feedback and support in all areas of the Network including, but not limited to, governance, financial stability, strategic planning, fundraising, marketing, operations and ensuring human resource compliance.
Board of Director’s Purpose:
Experience and Skills
LEN is seeking Board members with a variety of experience and background. Currently, we are seeking the following skill sets in particular:
Board of Directors Membership:
The Board of Directors will be made up of a minimum of 5 individuals to a maximum of 15 individuals, including:
Newly elected directors shall be elected for three-year (3) terms. Directors will serve no more than 2 consecutive terms and on subsequent terms from their first, they may serve less than 3 years at their choosing.
Decision shall be made by consensus. If consensus cannot be reached, a simple majority vote of those in attendance will decide the issue. Voting by email is also permitted.
Board members will meet monthly for regularly scheduled meetings (usually 11 a year). They must also sit on one other committee to the Board. They may from time to time appoint any committee or another advisory body, as it deems necessary or appropriate for such purposes. They must attend 75% of regularly scheduled meetings to be in good standing. Board members are also expected to commit a minimum of 1-3 hours a month of independent work outside of regularly scheduled meetings.
Please send a copy of your resume and a cover letter outlining why you want to join the Board to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “LEN Board Application”. We will be reviewing applications in January and early February and reaching out to those selected for an interview in late February.
The Governance and Finance Committee enables the LEN Board to maintain continuing oversight of the governance, policy and financial affairs of the London Environmental Network. These meetings serve as an opportunity for Committee members to seek clarification on matters relating to Board business.Read more
