Expression of Interest: NWTRPA Board of Directors: Director-at-Large

Are you passionate about healthy families, strong cultures, and vibrant communities?

Do you want to get involved in advocating for and shaping the recreation and on the land sectors in the NWT?

Join our Board of Directors as the new Director-at-Large!

We are looking to fill in a gap in our Board of Directors for a 1-year term.

About the NWTRPA Board of Directors:

The NWT Recreation and Parks Association has an eight-person volunteer Board of Directors. The Board is comprised of a President, a Director-at-Large and six regional members from across the NWT. The Board of Directors sets goals for the organization and monitors the progress towards reaching those goals.

The Role of NWTRPA Board of Directors:

  • Create and update policy

  • Monitor that policies are being followed

  • Complete tasks assigned to the Board in policy

  • Report to the membership

Time Commitment:

The NWTRPA Board of Directors is a volunteer position. The Board meets online/teleconference 3-4 times a year and in-person 3 times a year for a two-day, face-to-face meeting usually in Winter, Spring/Summer, and in the Fall at our Annual Conference/AGM.

Board members may be asked to join committees or working groups that will require additional conference calls and volunteer work. Aside from meetings, Board members can take part in other activities to support the organization.


  • Must be residents of the NWT.

  • Must be able to meet the time commitments of regularly attending board meetings.


  • Previous volunteer experience is considered an asset.

  • Experience in recreation, sport, land-based and cultural activities is considered an asset.

  • Experience with finance, board governance, policy, and non-profit groups is considered an asset.

Reasons to join our Board of Directors:

  1. Gain valuable experience and an increased understanding of the territorial and national recreation and on the land sector.

  2. Make connections with fun, interesting, and passionate people across the NWT. (We may be a little biased, but our current Board Members, staff & networks are pretty awesome!)

  3. It’s an opportunity to engage in thought-provoking conversations, share your perspectives and ideas, and collaborate with a diverse group of people.

  4. Take your board volunteer experience to the next level! There are opportunities to travel, attend training, join specific steering committees, and attend the annual NWTRPA conference.

  5. Share your wisdom, knowledge, and experience to help steer the direction of the NWTRPA. The NWTRPA would benefit from your unique expertise!

Expression of interest must be received by November 25, 2022.

Please contact or call the NWTRPA at 867-669-8375 if you have any questions or wish to apply over the phone.
