The Ottawa Sport Council is seeking two skilled, enthusiastic individuals with a passion for community sport to join our volunteer Board of Directors. 

  1. An individual with experience in administration in a paid or volunteer setting with strong organizational and notetaking skills to join our Board as Secretary.

    The Secretary ensures that the Board is well informed and that its activities are well documented for the use of Board members, and relevant government bodies.
