Community Wellbeing Advisory Board applications now open

If you love the Lethbridge community and have experience in decision-making, governance and community building, the City of Lethbridge has an exciting opportunity for you!

Applications are now open for the CoTx mmunity Wellbeing Advisory Board (CWAB). The board supports the City of Lethbridge by promoting community wellbeing in alignment with the Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and the recently refreshed and approved Community Wellbeing and Safety Strategy (CWSS). The primary role of the CWAB is to provide recommendations on how federal and provincial government funding is allocated within the community. The board also provides advice to the City on matters relating to the wellbeing of the community.

“The community here in Lethbridge stands out. We support our friends and neighbours when they need it, appreciate what we have and take pride in our beautiful city,” says Andrew Malcolm, General Manager of Community Social Development. “We want everyone to feel supported and we need the help and passion of the community to do that.”

Cyndi Bester, Chief Executive Officer of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce and current serving advisory board member, says community volunteerism is an accessible and powerful way to support your friends and neighbours.

“Serving the community in a way that directly impacts the kinds of wellbeing-focused resources and program we have available in Lethbridge is an incredible opportunity,” says Bester. “There is no better way to connect and contribute to your community than by volunteering your time and energy. It’s a rewarding experience and one that really brings equal benefit to both the volunteer and to your fellow residents.”

There are nine voting positions open on the CWAB and a diverse range of voices are being sought to represent the changing needs of the community. Indigenous perspectives are essential to this work and the CWAB has dedicated positions for Indigenous members.

“We want to have better wellbeing outcomes for everyone in Lethbridge,” says Malcolm. “Whether you’re a post-secondary student, a new Canadian or a fourth-generation resident who has lived here your whole life. We need experienced and innovative decision-makers from the community to help us work towards this goal.”

A virtual information session will be held on June 24 at 6 p.m. for any interested applicants. The online application form and additional CWAB information can be found at Applications close on July 11.
