Formed in 1974 the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation (SCIC) is a coalition of organizations and individuals working to advance sustainable global development. Today our members and partners include international development agencies, the peace-building and humanitarian bodies of major faith groups, educational organizations, solidarity groups, local community organizations, and individuals in Saskatchewan committed to building a more just and sustainable world.
Our Mission: to build momentum towards a just, equitable, and sustainable world by enhancing the capacity of our members, educating and inspiring the public to take action, and creating connections among those we serve.
Nomination Process: Applicants may self-nominate. Any person other than a corporation or society may stand for election by submitting an application form to be approved by the SCIC membership at the AGM. A nominee may be an individual member of SCIC, belong to an organizational member of SCIC, or be a member of the general public.
Term: Each director is elected to hold office for two years (i.e. joining this fall for the 2020/2021, and 2021/2022 program years). At each AGM, those on who have completed a two-year term are eligible for re-election to a maximum of 5 consecutive terms.
Time Commitment: The full board meets quarterly. There are additional opportunities for committee involvement, strategic visioning and event participation throughout the year. The Board has established the following standing committees: Executive Committee; Finance and Audit Committee; Campaign & Fundraising Committee; and Personnel and Governance Committee. The Board may also establish ad hoc committees. Required time commitment varies, depending on a director’s role, availability, and interest.
