If you live in Leduc County or a surrounding regional community, can provide keen insight to businesses and economic development, and are a leader in the region the Leduc-Nisku Economic Development Association (EDA) board of directors may be looking for you.

The EDA board of directors is seeking four new members. The volunteer positions are part of a 11 member board which focuses on three key areas to develop business and economic prosperity in the region: business retention, business attraction and business expansion.

Executive director Barbara Engelbart McKenzie says the role of directors is to ensure the responsible fiscal management of the organization, and provide strategic guidance and management to the EDA.

The expected time commitment needed from interested applicants is approximately 10 hours per month.

She added, included in that monthly commitment is board committee responsibilities, reviewing board materials and other events as they arise.

Applicants who are offered the position can expect to become integral in helping encourage economic prosperity of the region.

“The large initiative for 2017 is developing the new three year strategic plan (2018-2020),” said Engelbart McKenzie.

She adds one of the key notes of the board of directors is that it is a governance board, not an operational board.

Interested applicants are encouraged to submit a resume and cover letter to Engelbart McKenzie at board@leducniskueda.com by 4 p.m. on Feb. 10.
