CYM’s Education and Outreach Committee has launched a new quarterly newsletter. You can find the first issue at http://quaker.ca/news-and-events/newsletter/
At Yearly Meeting 2016 in Camrose, Canadian Yearly Meeting approved a new CYM Secretary position to foster the growth and deepening of Quakerism within CYM through supporting and enhancing the work of the CYM Clerks and Committees.
Interested candidates should review the job description and posting for the CYM Secretary. We ask interested candidates to respond by March 17th through Charity Village (https://charityvillage.com/jobs/find-jobs.aspx) with a resume and cover letter. For interested candidates outside Ottawa we ask, in addition, that the application reflect on the ways in which the candidate would provide effective collaboration with the CYM Office Administrator and the CYM Bookkeeper, both of whom are based in CYM’s Ottawa office. Should candidates have any questions these may be sent to Elaine Bishop, Mentoring Clerk, who is clerking the Hiring Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to the exciting opportunity that this process is creating. We hope that the process will be completed in time for the newly appointed CYM Secretary can attend the June Representative Meeting.
