SITE Canada Committees

You can get the most out of your SITE Canada membership by volunteering to serve on a committee.  Please see below for brief descriptions of the various SITE Canada committees.

If you are interested in volunteering please email office@sitecanada.org for more information.

SITE Canada Committees:

Chapter Meetings

The Chapter Meetings Committee is responsible for the content and logistics for three to four meetings a year. The challenge is being able to create new experiences with each chapter meeting with new or unusual venues that will create the extraordinary. In addition to the venue, the program offered during a chapter meeting should provide education or new ideas/concepts that the attendees can take away and use in their own workplace.  One committee member needs to be appointed as sponsorship liaison to work with the Director of Sponsorship in securing sponsors.

Communications

The Communications Committee is responsible for the SITElines e-newsletter that is distributed to our database and is posted on our website. The Communications Committee creates the content, solicits advertising and fulfils the sponsor benefits with respect to the communications portfolio.

The Communications Committee is also responsible for the website and social media content. A new website was launched early in 2011 and it is important for the content to remain current. 
Communications also administers the SITE Canada social media channels such as Facebook LinkedIn and Twitter.

Education
The Education Committee plans the program content and logistics for the SITE Canada Education Day held in the fall. The program is designed to provide attendees with a variety of sessions aimed at stimulating ideas and discussion.  Beside the program, committee members are responsible to liaise with the venue, sponsors and other suppliers.  One committee member needs to be appointed as sponsorship liaison to work with the Director of Sponsorship in securing sponsors.

Golf

The Golf Committee is responsible for all aspects of the annual golf tournament, held the Monday prior to Incentive Works in August, including golf course, registration, signage, golfers, transportation, sponsorship, etc.

The Golf Committee also looks after sponsors for the golf tournament and ensures the sponsor benefits are fulfilled.  One committee member needs to be appointed as sponsorship liaison to work with the Director of Sponsorship in securing sponsors.

Membership

The Membership Committee plays a critical role in growing the membership of SITE Canada as well as ensuring that current members receive value so that they continue to remain a member. They also look after the Volunteer Champion Program.

The Membership Committee has established a Young Leaders Program and further development of this program will continue this year.  The Membership Committee will also pursue sponsorship opportunities for the Young Leader program in conjunction with the Director of Sponsorship.

Social

The Social Committee organizes the Spring Social, an event that raises money for SITE Canada’s charity of choice, as well as for the SITE Canada Education Reserve Fund which provides money to enhance the quality of speakers that SITE Canada offers.

The Social Committee raises funds through a silent and live auction and the committee solicits donations for the auction.   One committee member needs to be appointed as sponsorship liaison to work with the Director of Sponsorship in securing sponsors.

All aspects of the event are planned by the Social Committee including venue, theme, décor, etc.

Sponsorship

The Sponsorship Committee is responsible to find organizations that will donate money and in-kind services so that SITE Canada can provide extraordinary programs.

The Sponsorship Committee is also responsible to ensure that sponsors receive the benefits promised through the sponsorship program.


The Director of Sponsorship will work with the appointed committee members who are sponsorship liaisons in securing sponsorship for the various committees.
