FaithLife Financial is a federally-regulated, fraternal insurance organization, whose mission is “protecting financial futures, living Christian values and building a better world”.
In order to fill anticipated future gaps on our Board of Directors over the next couple of years, our Board is looking for a Chartered Professional Accountant who has served governance boards, has a background in financial services (ideally with knowledge of IFRS rules for life insurance companies or with actuarial experience). FaithLife is undertaking a bold business transformation, and in addition to the technical CPA experience, requires new board directors who have a mindset of innovation and transformation with a vision to deliver short-term results and achieving long-term sustainable growth.
We are looking for an individual who demonstrates a commitment to a Christian fraternal organization, who practices behaviours of an effective director (such as clear communication skills, prudent judgement, self-awareness, integrity, accountability, objectivity and affability), and who will help to balance the Board’s composition.
A Director is expected to attend all meetings and to actively serve on two Board Committees. Typically, a Director can expect to commit six to eight days per quarter in preparation for, and attending, meetings of the Board and Board Committees. The commitment is for up to a four-year term, subject to acceptable performance, renewable for up to twelve years maximum after which Directors must rotate off the Board. In accordance with regulatory and best practices, a condition of becoming a Director is receiving satisfactory background and reference checks and a confirmation vote from members. Directors receive an annual retainer. Candidates are required to be, or become, members of the fraternal organization.
