FBC is seeking dedicated and enthusiastic individuals, who are committed to assisting FBC achieve its goals, to serve on our Board of Directors.
Board membership requires commitment, leadership, decision-making, and integrity.

Board members are expected to participate in Board meetings (usually held four times a year, alternately at the Glassville Demonstration Site or the Fredericton Satellite Office at the Ville), to participate in at least one Board committee, and to engage in generating revenue (from fundraising, sponsorships, memberships, and services) on behalf of the organization.
Ideal candidates will be trained professionals with fundraising and/or previous board experience, who possess a strong interest in the promotion and development of sustainable communities and practices. Previous experience in the not-for-profit sector or with other registered charities is an asset.
