Board Positions

Additionally, the Board may, from time to time, appoint Class B (non-voting) Members-at-Large for specific initiatives or projects.

The Board is currently accepting nominations and applications for the Treasurer position.

Volunteer and Paid

Ambassadors are spokespersons and community representatives for Rare Earth Outreach. They work closely with the Vice Chair and Nominee Director to ensure that content is posted on various social media platforms ie) shared in relevant online forums and groups, reaching out to partner organisations to build relationships, assist with online and in-person events, attend trade fairs and conferences, and more. Individuals applying to be Ambassadors are passionate EDI advocates, understand deadlines, follow instructions carefully, and work well independently.

By year three we hope to have funding in place for short-term paid Ambassador  opportunities; priority for paid positions will be given to individuals who have volunteer experience.
