Wondering How to Make a Difference?
The Town of Black Diamond is proud to have a long history of wonderful volunteers. If you are interested in playing an active role in your community, we encourage you to take a look at the following committees and organizations that are often in need of volunteers and feel free to contact them for further information. Volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to, the following:
Committees and Boards
One of the many ways to volunteer in our community is to serve on a Committee of Council. Most of the Committees, Boards and Commissions have residents of the Town of Black Diamond who serve as Members at Large. If you would like information about serving on any of these boards or would like to attend any of their public meetings, please call the Town Office at 403-933-4348, email us, or check the Events Calendar to find out http://town.blackdiamond.ab.ca/DocumentCenter/View/93when the next meeting of that Committee is scheduled to take place.
FCSS Board vacancies
A vacancy for both a member-at-large and youth representative position is currently available on the Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) board for the Town of Black Diamond. Meetings occur the 2nd Monday evening of each month (except summer) to make decisions regarding preventative social programming in the Town of Black Diamond. The intent behind FCSS programs and services is to build a strong, cohesive and supportive community. FCSS seeks a student of Oilfields High School who would like to bring the voice of their generation to the table for the Youth Representative position and a resident of Black Diamond for the Member-at-Large position.
Anyone interested in serving on the FCSS board is asked to submit a completed application to Suzan Nagel at SuzanN@town.blackdiamond.ab.ca Applications are available at the front desk of the Town office or at http://town.blackdiamond.ab.ca/DocumentCenter/View/93.
