The Edmonton Construction Association (ECA) is looking for an established marketing, communications, or strategic planning leader to join our Board of Directors as an appointee. ECA’s Board provides strategic leadership and governance for our organization to ensure we are fulfilling our mandate, operating with fiscal responsibility, and working towards long term sustainability.
About the Board
The ECA’s Board of Directors is comprised of up to 16 Directors, including 1 Director Ex-Officio (the Chair of the Board), and up to 4 appointed Board members. Directors represent the Association's 4 Classifications of Membership — General Contractors (3), Trade Contractors (3), Manufacturers & Suppliers (3) and Architects & Engineers (2). Directors are elected for 3-year terms.
The Board was created to support the Association’s vision, mission, values, and strategy. In an effort to enhance the Board’s role, the ECA actively develops and renews its board membership with specific experience, background and competency. The board acts collectively and exercises its powers and responsibilities as a group. No individual director has the power to act on their own.
The ideal candidate for this role will be an individual who holds or has held a senior management or executive position with a company involved in marketing, communications, or strategic planning in Alberta. We look for individuals with prior experience in developing medium to long term strategic plans. Familiarity with Alberta's construction industry and experience working with or on a governance type board would be an asset.
As a non-profit organization, ECA Board members serve voluntarily. Appointed directors are appointed for a one-year, renewable term, who need not be members. The ECA Board is a volunteer leadership position that requires approximately 75-100 hours of personal commitment per year. This includes four quarterly board meetings, an annual 3-day board strategic planning retreat, as well as board committee responsibilities.
