Volunteer with ECCV

ECCV Board members are all volunteers and like most community based organisations we would not be able to function without the great work that volunteers do and the time they devote to the organisation’s governance.

Members of the Board are elected but there are still areas of involvement where general volunteers can make their mark such as being part of one of our policy committees. 

All committees are tasked with monitoring the implementation of strategies, evaluating effectiveness and guiding future direction. 

All committee members must be financial members of ECCV and are appointed to their positions by way of application process. All committee members are required to attend monthly meetings, community events and represent the ECCV in a respectful and professional manner.

To apply for a position on a committee, please look out for vacancies and follow the prompts. To enquire about committees, please email the respective committee contact person.

We also take on board office based volunteers from time to time to help with supporting events or project work so if you have some skills in these areas give us a call, we’d love to talk to you. 

 

Intern with ECCV

ECCV  hopes to begin another round of policy internships in 2019.
