LEN Board of Directors Applications

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:

  • Develop and execute strategy for LEN – set strategic framework so that staff and Network Members can develop specific goals and tactics
  • Develop and monitor (with input from staff and network members) annual goals and benchmarks; approve annual goals in subsequent years.
  • Ensure that Network is accountable to funding sources in terms of deliverables and reporting.
  • Assist with funding sustainability plans.
  • Drive resources (funding, people, opportunities) toward Network whenever possible (ie. recruiting volunteers, assisting with funding development etc.)
  • Create ad hoc and sub-committees to address specific or ongoing Network issues.
  • Ensure financial, and human resource compliance.
  • Engage in succession planning for LEN Leadership, both board and staff.
