Join the 10C Board of Directors

Posted on: March 1, 2024

10C is seeking new members for the Board of Directors!

10C currently has opportunities for new members on its very active and engaged board of Directors. We seek applications from individuals with a broad range of skills and knowledge and encourage applications from those with entrepreneurial drive and expertise in business, technology, social finance, accounting, investment, financial management, legal, and fundraising. Join us!

This year, we are looking to recruit for the following positions:

  • Secretary: Role includes supporting the administration and logistics of board meetings (i.e. taking and sharing meeting minutes, support AGM planning)
  • Finance Committee Member: Role includes financial analysis, guidance, and oversight of the budget and long-term financial health.
  • Fundraising Committee Member: Role includes collaborating with staff to create and execute on a fundraising strategy for the organization.

We are also seeking a future Vice Chair and would love to hear from community members with board experience who may be interested in investing in this leadership opportunity.


  • The Board meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (except for July and August) from 6:00PM to 8:00PM. 
  • Meetings are held in-person (preferred) at 10C, with hybrid meeting options possible.
  • There are up to 2 in-person retreat sessions annually, each approximately 4-5 hours.
  • Additional committee meetings, communication and pre-reading or document review outside of meeting time, with an average of 2-3 hours per month.
  • Key roles like Secretary, Treasurer and Vice Chair can expect more of a time commitment especially around certain times of year, like financial year end, budgeting and the Annual General Meeting.
  • Director term is 3 years with a maximum of 3 terms completed back to back.
  • All members of the Board of Directors must also be members in good standing of 10C Shared Space.

10C is committed to learning, equity and building a diverse community in which everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

We are on a journey to ensure the Board of Directors represents and reflects the rich diversity of Guelph. The 10C Board embraced and met the federal 50/30 Challenge and together with the staff team, applies a lens of intersectionality, understanding that individuals often face multi-faceted, overlapping forms of social identities and various forms of discrimination and marginalization may be present as barriers to full participation in community life. 

10C encourages applications from those across race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, geographic locations and lived experiences. 10C values lived experience alongside educational and workplace experience; if you are comfortable highlighting your lived experience on your application, this will help us consider your application in a holistic way. We aim to do our best to meet the accessibility and accommodation needs of our Board members by hosting meetings online and in-person, as well as supporting other methods of engagement.
