Treasures Board of Directors
Treasures Charity Thrift Store is operated by registered charity Beginning Again Richmond Hill. The Board of Directors for Beginning Again Richmond oversee the operation of Treasures.
Treasures exists to provide social and vocational rehabilitation for individuals recovering from mental illness, to promote mental health and to operate a thrift store in the community. To facilitate our work, we rely on volunteer leadership in the thrift store and on the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors consists of up to seven directors elected by the members at the Annual General Meeting. Directors are elected for a one year term however, generally serve several terms. The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the business of the organization. Some positions on the Board have specific duties such as President, Secretary, Treasurer and Communications.
Treasures’ Board members may be volunteers, family members, professionals and community members. Previous board experience is not necessary but enthusiasm, teamwork and a desire to contribute to a worthwhile social enterprise are prerequisites. Board Members are expected to attend and actively participate in monthly board meetings, and occasional special planning sessions. In addition, Board Members monitor the strategic plan, business plan, and annual budget, and help make decisions that guide the organization’s progress. Email access for Directors is preferred for ease of communication and may be required for some duties.
Volunteering to serve on our Board of Directors is an excellent way for individuals to make a difference in the lives of individuals living with mental illness and contribute in the Richmond Hill community.
