UPCOMING CPPPBC BOARD MEETINGS:

October 24th, November 21st, January 16th,
February 20th, April 10th, May 15th, June 5th
 
What Are the Benefits of Being on the CPPPBC Board?
You know how some things in life seem rather thankless? Like scrubbing the toilet, cleaning the kitchen floor, and washing the dog? Well, in a busy world, here’s an opportunity to make a real difference, without taking up too much of your time 
 
Join the Board of Directors of the Council of Parent Participation Preschools in BC!
Every moment you spend will be much appreciated by your fellow Board Members, Council Staff, and the Members of our Preschools. The Board meets for two hours each month from September to June. Not only will you have a chance to see the inner workings of the organization, but you’ll have a say in decision-making and the direction of the group. Whether you are passionate about PPP/PIP, curious about behind-the-scenes, keen to make some changes, or new to the whole parent cooperative thing, there is room for you on the Board. Some people may choose to take on a role such as Board Chair or Secretary, others may be happier to remain a Member-At-Large. Representing your preschool at the Council Board meetings can count as a designated job.
 
Maybe Monday nights are tough for you. While Board members are asked to attend as often as possible, we understand that life as parents is very busy. As long as you can commit to at least four meetings a year, we would love to have you involved. We serve delicious refreshments at the Board meetings, and get the chance to really make a difference to build and support the parent cooperative preschool community…..What more could you want?
 
If you think that helping the Board could be for you, please contact Roberta in the Council office: or (604) 435-4430. We invite you to join us!
WE WANT YOU!  WE NEED YOU!  JOIN US!
