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.

  • Major Gifts Cabinet

    The Alberta/NWT Division is currently recruiting senior leadership volunteers to sit on the Major Gifts Cabinet. The Society would like to have 12 representatives from different communities and economic sectors throughout the Alberta/NWT Division. As a Major Gifts Cabinet member you would be asked to take leadership in identifying, cultivating and soliciting prospective donors, as well as recruiting senior leadership volunteers who will assist with prospect entrees and solicitations. The ultimate objective would be to meet the Canadian Cancer Society’s fundraising goals.
