EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR (Ancien employé) – Elmwood, Winnipeg – 2 janvier 2014
A typical day at work was to come in and check for voice messages and emails, prioritize and deal with most urgent. Get a coffee and begin work on any funding proposals or reports that were due. Did research for funding proposals. Went over supply orders with executive assistant and approved or added to them. Met with staff to help resolve problems or concerns they may have encountered or to assign tasks or gather info for writing proposals.
Opened mail with executive assistant, advising which bills should be paid with which funding, passing over mail to staff, making decisions about purchasing promotional materials for the organization.
Approving expenditures and signing off on them, plus co-signing cheques for bill payment. Meeting with the comptroller to analyze whether we were meeting our proposed budget and making decisions on adjustments as needed.
Checking email and phone messages and responding throughout the day. Attending meetings onsite and offsite re networking, community action, service provider action. Chaired several committees.

Close knit staff, gossip, heavy workload, not enough professional development for board members
