Role: Board Member
Type: board of directors position / unpaid
Organization: Langley Community Farmers' Market
Location: Langley, Greater Vancouver BC

The Langley Community Farmers’ Market Society is recruiting board members to both strengthen our capacity and to engage fresh perspectives for a renewed vision for the Market in Langley.

From its inception, the Langley Community Farmers’ Market has been conscious that its success would be dependent on a supportive community that would shop at the market but would also be an active partner in defining the role of the market within the community.

Overall, the purpose of the market is to:

  • Contribute to the economic viability of local farms, cottage industries and small businesses that make, bake or grow their products
  • Operate a market that creates opportunities for these producers to interact with each other and their customers.
  • Offer opportunities for public education in related areas such as nutrition, sustainable agriculture, the local economy, and the environment.

The Board has played different roles over those 10 years, with a recent emphasis on differentiating between governance and management. We strive for a mix of board members, including from among our vendors, our community partners, and the general public. For the upcoming board we are looking to add a vendor and up to 2 general members with skills in one or more of: non-profit governance, fundraising and sponsorships, and strategic visioning for the role of the market in the community.

We hope that this opportunity might be of interest to you! For more information, contact a current board member at . Or call 604-999-4596.
