CALL FOR CHIEFSWOOD BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Post Date: January 12, 2015

Chiefswood National Historic Site Board of Trustees (CBOT) is looking for community-minded strategic thinkers. Following the passing of the last Johnson child, Evelyn Johnson in 1937, the mansion was given to the Six Nations community. Beginning in 1953, the Six Nations Band Council began raising funds for the restoration of Chiefswood. Through generous support and fundraising efforts, the Chiefswood mansion was opened to the public as a museum in 1963. Since that time the site has been run by Six Nations Council in partnership with the Chiefswood Board of Trustees. Through public and educational programming, special events and exhibitions, Chiefswood strives to promote the knowledge and enjoyment of regional art, culture and history in particular the history of the Johnson family and Pauline Johnson.

CBOT is particularly interested in people with skills or experience in the following areas:

Financial Management – Legal - Fundraising - Local / Six Nations history - Women’s studies - Literary studies - Indigenous studies - Museums / Galleries

New board members must be willing to attend board meeting (the board meets at a minimum quarterly in January, April, July, October). Board members may also wish to volunteer their time occasionally for fundraising / special events and initiatives.

  • Current resume
