|The Indigenous Centre for Cumulative Effects (ICCE) is looking for candidates for its first permanent Board of Directors and for its new Technical Advisory Committee. If you are interested in the topic of cumulative effects on Indigenous communities’ lands and lives, we encourage you to get involved with ICCE.
The Indigenous Centre for Cumulative Effects was legally incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in November 2019. The Centre’s objective is to help build and enhance the technical and scientific capacity of Indigenous communities for cumulative effects assessment, monitoring and management, based on the values of First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities to better protect their community’s lands and culture.
An interim Board of Directors has steered ICCE through its incorporation as an independent Indigenous centre of expertise and were key in developing a vision, work plan, and the Inaugural Forum in February 2020. We are deeply grateful for the generosity of the Interim Board in sharing their leadership, wisdom, and experience to help the Centre grow to where we are today.
We are now seeking candidates for the ICCE permanent Board of Directors, with representation from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit members (ICCE Board members must be Indigenous).
We are also seeking applicants for our independent Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) which will provide ongoing advice to the Centre on cumulative effects. The TAC will be selected based on a wide range of expertise and will be composed of both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples. For more information regarding the TAC please click here for the Terms of Reference.
More information on the roles and responsibilities of the Board of Directors and the TAC, along with the required qualifications, can be found here.
APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED!
Applications from interested candidates for the Board of Directors and/or Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) are due November 1st, 2020. Applications for both the Board and the TAC must include a CV or letter including a description of relevant experience and expertise, as well as the reasons you are interested in joining the ICCE Team.
ICCE represents a great opportunity for Indigenous peoples to develop capacity and tools and share information in the important area of cumulative effects. Please take the time to reflect on how you or someone else in your community can contribute to the success of ICCE.
If you have an interest in cumulative effects, we invite you to contact us to get involved. Please send your expression of interest as well as any questions you may have to our National Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ICCE’s website is currently under construction but will launch in the coming weeks, you can find us at www.icce-caec.ca.
