Whether you want to volunteer for a few hours, or for a long-term commitment, every donation of time means the world to us.
If you’re interested in helping out, contact us.
The Lower Mainland Down Syndrome Society (LMDSS) is actively seeking candidates for our board of directors. If you live in B.C., have an ardent desire to use your skills and experience to help provide a better life and future for individuals with Down syndrome, and their families, then we would like to hear from you.
Applicants must be willing to commit to serving a two-year volunteer term. Prior board experience, while it is not mandatory, would be an asset. Currently, we have specific needs for directors with experience in finance, non-profit law, family law, social media, grant writing, fundraising, event planning, outreach, and a self-advocate director, but we welcome all applicants and skills to apply.
LMDSS has a strong commitment to our B.C. communities, diversity, inclusion, and support for the families that we serve. As an LMDSS Board Member you will be responsible for ensuring the organization meets their legal requirements and that it is working in accordance with its mission for the purpose for which it was granted a non-profit status.
Members of the board must execute duty and care, attend meetings, be prepared to make informed decisions and be able to request further details if topics deem necessary.
