ISANS is currently seeking applications for the 2022-2023 Board of Directors. We seek individuals with board governance experience, lived experience as an immigrant and/or who hold leadership roles in the community or in your organization. This year, we are particularly looking for an individual with experience in senior leadership and/or board governance and oversight on budgeting, financial controls and reporting, risk management, and strategic planning. A CPA accounting designation would be an asset.

The ISANS Board of Directors is responsible for providing strategic leadership and direction to the organization and maintains a clear distinction between Board and management roles, recognizing the interdependencies between them. The volunteer Board meets 8 times a year and members participate on Board standing committees.

ISANS is dedicated to inclusiveness, equality and accessibility. We seek talented individuals who represent the diverse community we serve. We encourage applicants to self-identify the diversity you represent in your application. ISANS is committed to a barrier-free application process and encourages applicants to request any accommodation required.
