Advisory Council

Our advisory council is made up of individuals who are experts in their field. They don’t meet as a formal group, but believe in our mission and are available for MBC to call upon as needed for advice and guidance. If you feel that you have knowledge or expertise in an area that MBC may be able to benefit from, please reach out to us

“As needed” work

We often have a need for people who can help out in a variety of ways and look for people who have an interest and an aptitude. There is no set commitment of hours – we’ll ask and you tell us if you can do it. This type of work is always changing, depending on what projects or initiatives we have going on at any time. However, examples might be:

  • Proof-reading documents

  • French translation

  • Research or the accumulation and organization of information

  • Social network management tasks
     

If you have a particular skill set and are interested in helping out as needed, let us know
