The Opportunity - Director, Board of Directors  

Humana Community Services is currently seeking engaged community members and strategic thinkers to join our 12-member governance Board of Directors to boldly guide and shape the future of our work.  

Who We Are 

Humana Community Services (Humana) is a registered charity and licensed social services agency supporting the mental health and developmental needs of children, youth and adults. Since its inception, Humana has continued to grow in direct response to the needs of our community.

Today, 200 highly trained Humana staff members provide specialized supports and services to individuals and families in London-Middlesex, Chatham-Kent and Huron County. 

Who You Are 

A community member who is passionate about making a difference and whose personal values align with Humana’s vision, mission and core values. 

Vision - A vibrant community supporting the lifetime growth of individuals 

and their families

Mission - We find, develop, and deliver supports and solutions that are 

right for people with specialized needs

Core Values - Accountability | Respect | Service Excellence | Collaboration | Relationships | Building on Strengths

In order to retain the competencies of vacating board members we are particularly interested in recruiting individuals who have skills or expertise in the following areas:

  • Professional credentials and experience in the fields of finance/accounting, law, education, marketing or business leadership
  • A broad range of life experiences that may include a personal connection to mental health and/or developmental disabilities, although this is not a requirement
  • Critical thinking and communication skills and the ability to work in a collaborative team environment
  • Experience and understanding of diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Candidates must reside in the geographic region that we serve

The Process

To ensure the best possible decision-making environment, preference will be given to candidates that broaden the diversity of the board in areas such as ethnicity, race, culture, gender, gender identity, age, ability, and constructive areas of expertise and lived experience.

Successful candidate terms will commence September 2022. Directors are expected to attend an orientation session and monthly board meetings held in the evening the last Tuesday of each month, except in July, August and December. Opportunities for board committee involvement and participation at events will exist throughout the year.  

How to Apply

Please send us a brief statement outlining your interest in joining Humana’s Board of Directors and a current résumé by May 27, 2022. 

Please email your application to dfulmer@humanacs.org indicating Board of Directors in the subject line.

Applications will be reviewed and acknowledged as they are received. Chosen candidates will be invited to meet virtually with a small group of current board members to further explore this opportunity.
