It is with great excitement that we make the following announcement that we are hiring for a new position!!
As the Board of Directors looks to the future of the league and the tasks associated with executing the strategic plan for the next three years, it has been decided to retire the Operations Coordinator position in favour of hiring a part-time Director of Operations for the league. This will be a 2 year contract. The Board had already increased the number of hours the Operations Coordinator was working however with the growth and outreach goals of the league, and the decreased volunteerism, an increase in autonomy and complexity of the role is required. This recruitment will be open until April 8th and all interested parties are encouraged to apply here.
Since I know you are wondering, I will address the elephant in the room. Our current Operations Coordinator, Jocelyne Stone, has been, and continues to be, an integral part to the success of this league and we thank her for her contributions in her role over the past number of years. Jocelyne has told us she will be applying for the position, but we also need to ensure we open the position to anyone who would like to apply.
