Spirit Of Adventure Rendezvous (SOAR) 2020 Steering Committee Applications – Deadline Oct 31 2018

SOAR 2020 Camp Responsible Guiders Cathy Cook and Deb Oakley are inviting BC Guiders to apply for the SOAR 2020 Steering Committee. They are looking for capable, enthusiastic women to build the Steering Committee. These Directors and Coordinators are the team that will make SOAR 2020 the best SOAR yet!

The first SOAR 2020 Steering Committee Meeting will be: January 25-26, 2019 at Guide House in North Vancouver. Note that members of the Steering Committee are reimbursed for travel.

The commitment is for the period of January 2019 to August 2020, including a wrap-up and debrief meeting in November 2020.

The Co-Responsible Guiders, Cathy and Deb, were selected by the BC Provincial Council. All positions will be appointed through an application and screening process.  Applications will be assessed based on background, experience and expertise. The assessment process will include reference checks.

Once Steering Committee positions have been filled, Directors may recommend a member to serve as a deputy, but all candidates will be assessed using the same process as other Steering Committee members. Subordinate positions to the Steering Committee will be staffed using the same selection process.

  • Deputy Responsible Guider (Mentee)
  • Area Liaison Coordinator
  • Core Staff Liaison
  • Event and Emergency Management Director
  • Food Services Quarter Master Store Director
  • Food Services Cafeteria Director

  • Merchandising Director
  • Program Directors
  • Public Relations Director
  • Registrar
  • Secretary/Assistant
  • Site Services Director
  • Special Events Director
  • Sub Camp Liaisons
  • Transportation Director
  • Treasurer

In early 2019, we will also be looking for a youth member to help put “Girls First” into the Program.  More information will come out about that in January.

To find out more about joining this exciting team, please visit the SOAR Website. There you will find committee qualifications, position descriptions, committee responsibilities, and the link for the Steering Committee member application form.
