Board Membership

boardroom The Board of Directors for Lord Roberts Community Centre is a group of (unpaid) volunteers from our community who come together to run the community centre, and its programs. The Board meets once every month, on the second Monday of each month, in the club's boardroom, in order to exchange information needed by Board members for decision making, and to operate the club to the best of the membership's ability.

The Board consists of elected members. The elected positions are a President, a Past President, one or more Vice-President(s), a Secretary, a Treasurer, a Special Events Coordinator, one or more Soccer Convenor(s), one or more Hockey Convenor(s), a Canteen Manager and a House and Grounds Manager. Each position has its own responsibilities to ensure the smooth running of the community centre.

Board Membership is renewed once every year in March, when all positions become vacant, and a newly elected membership takes over at the annual general meeting of the community centre. The Board of Directors is at the helm of everything the community centre does, without the Board, the club cannot be.



Many volunteers are required to assist with the duties of the Board of Directors for Lord Roberts Community Centre. Volunteers are needed by the Canteen Manager in order to have the Canteen operate in the manner that is required, both on a day-to-day basis, and as well during functions that the club is host to. The Special Events Coordinator requires volunteers in order to assist with planning, organizing and with carrying out special events throughout the course of the year. The Sports Convener(s) will need the help of coaches in order to assist in planning, organizing and carrying out the various sports programs offered by the community centre. Volunteers are the backbone of the community centre, and without them, the Board of Directors cannot operate the club.
