Angel Board Members

Our African AIDS Angels AGM will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday May 26th.

We have two Board positions open. Terms are for one year.

We are looking for individuals who enjoy working with people, enjoy the puzzle of organizing and can commit to 4 meetings a year.

Potential tasks would be:

Volunteer Coordinator: to keep connected with volunteers, welcome new members, assist with information and access to materials.

Marketing Coordinator: to oversee marketing events such as craft fairs, mall events and open house. We have a large body of active volunteers always ready to respond to help at these events.

Or other projects that would match the skills of the board member.

Craft skills are not a pre-requisite, and we would welcome inquiries from individuals who are interested in AIDS Angels but have not yet participated in our activities.

If you are curious about becoming a Board Member, or if you know someone who would be interested in becoming involved as an Angel Board Member, please send an email to or call Mary at 250-727-0226.
