Committee Member - Aging and Spirituality


Organization: The Council on Aging of Ottawa

Commitment: Ongoing (more than a year)

Availability: Flexible; Days

Language Preference: Bilingual

Number of Positions Available: 4

Location: Ottawa - Central

Deadline: Aug 27, 2021


Who we are: The Aging and Spirituality Committee has traditionally planned and delivered an annual face-to-face conference that explores some aspect of the spiritual journey of aging. During the COVID lockdown, we offered two virtual events: a three-week online journaling workshop and a “virtual conference” that included a taped panel discussion followed by a virtual workshop with the three panel presenters.

What we need: Ideally, we are looking for new committee members of all faiths (or no faith) who are interested in how spirituality evolves as we age. We are particularly interested in creative people who can work with us to plan, develop, and implement some new educational events. If you are a spiritual individual who enjoys public speaking and/or event planning, we’d love to hear from you.

Note: Applicants should submit a brief paragraph describing their interest in the committee and what they feel they could contribute.
