What skills will you contribute to the NCF Board?
I sit on a few community minded Committees (2 are steering committees) and I could foster linkages between these communities and NCF. I see opportunites to help NCF gain more members who could possably contribute to NCF's community.
What do you think are the most important functions of NCF for its members?
I think the most important function of NCF is balancing accessability and sustainability.
Why do you want to be an NCF director?
I see a great opportunity to network between my work on People First: Ottawa Action on Poverty, www.povertyawareness.ca , Homesafe steering Committee, the CERA project, and other projects I am or have been involved in in the community and NCF's Projects on Accesability (ie SmartCapital Project)
I am a disabled single mother of 3. We are all NCF members and started Volunteering for NCF within months of becoming members (a family habit we have). NCF is the only ISP we have ever used and we enjoy sharing the new "net' world it has opened up for us. I am constantly encouraging those around me to join NCF and contribute in any way they are able. I feel the financial sustainablity of NCF while crucial does not out weigh the community feeling that encourages members to stay and contribute on a longterm basis.
