The Marketing and Development Committee is comprised of knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and committed individuals who provide support in the planning of LC’s fundraising and awareness initiatives to support the organization to achieve its goals and mandate. Since LC is a national organization, committees strive to have Canada-wide representation in its membership.
Committee members are required to attend monthly planning meetings, which generally involves between 5 to 10 hours per month. In addition to assisting with tasks associated with fundraising events, members help to coordinate a minimum of one fundraising event each year. Members also help with the strategic planning of marketing and development initiatives and work to seek sponsorships, solicit silent auction items, and recruit volunteers.
