Description of Charity/Foundation:
The Community Ambassadors aim to help non-profit organizations, ranging from small to large and complex, by helping them connect with the skills-based volunteers they need. These sectors include poverty reduction, health, and support for children, addictions recovery, the arts, animals, and the environment.
Over the past five year the Community Ambassadors has grown into something amazing. Our initial goal was to connect Chartered Professional Accounts with non-profit groups in Calgary, and we expanded to Edmonton in 2016. We have helped numerous charities find qualified volunteers, and we are very proud of this accomplishment. In the pursuit of continuing our success, we want to ensure the group has energetic leadership to benefit our communities.

The Board will meet at least quarterly outside of business hours, and may meet more frequently (monthly) as we are approaching our annual networking events in Calgary and Edmonton.
