Nechi Board Of Governors “Expression Of Interest”
March 5, 2012
Nechi Institute’s philosophy is founded upon spirituality of Aboriginal Peoples for our collective well being. It is through our Aboriginal way of knowing, healing and learning that Aboriginal people master our challenges and determine our destinies.
For thirty-eight years, Nechi has been a leader in addictions treatment research and training. Our people have been diversely affected by colonization, and the remnants of abuse and trauma continues to affect our Aboriginal communities. At Nechi, we continue to teach our students how to apply de-colonization utilizing a unique teaching model that applies theory to practice through role-playing, experiential learning and group work.Nechi’s original mandate was to improve the health and wellbeing of our Aboriginal Peoples, general public, and the international community. For thirty-eight years, we continue to do this through knowledge transfer and exchange, and by demonstrating a compassionate approach embracing kindness and honesty. We continue to rely on the strength, wisdom, and guidance of our Elders.
Nechi Institute is now recruiting 4 People to become members on the Nechi Training, Research and Health Promotions Institute’s Board of Governors. The Board membership will include applications from the Treaty 6, Treaty 8, and Métis Communities who have previous experience with aboriginal addiction and/or mental health issues, education, with fundraising experience, and who represent the diverse communities (i.e. different expectations, beliefs, and cultural ways of understanding) in Alberta.
Interested applicants should complete the following Expression of Interest form and provide a cover letter, and three letters of support with the completed application.
Expressions of Interest will be accepted up to 4:00 pm on Thursday, March 15, 2012. The Board of Governors will inform successful candidates once the selection process is complete.
