Join a leadership group
At every level of the organization, the Society offers ways to be involved as a leader – whether it’s as a member of the national or provincial boards, regional or local councils or advisory groups and committees. Leadership volunteers offer strategic and tactical guidance and share their professional skills and networks to advance the mission of the organization. Responsibilities may also include assisting with engaging volunteers, securing sponsorships, developing partnerships and advancing relations with business and government entities, as well as representing the Canadian Cancer Society at community events.
