Becoming a Labdara Foundation Member

Members of the Labdara Foundation** are persons of good standing in the Lithuanian community who have applied and been accepted for membership by the Board of Directors as determined by vote at a Board meeting of the Labdara Foundation. Applications for membership are vetted as per conflict of interest rules and presented to the Board by the Secretary of the Board of Directors. [*Note Labdara's Conflict of Interest Policy may be viewed below]
To become a member of the Labdara Foundation you must complete an application form and pay an initiation/application fee of $100CDN. The application form and a cheque, payable to: Labdara Foundation (in memo line indicate: membership fee), may be left at the Labdara Nursing Home reception desk in an envelope addressed to: Secretary, Labdara Foundation, or mailed to: 

     Secretary, Labdara Foundation
     Labdara Lithuanian Nursing Home
     5 Resurrection Road

The Secretary of the Board will inform the applicant of the Board’s decision. Once accepted as a member of the Labdara Foundation, the member may be required to pay annual membership fees as determined by the Foundation’s By-laws and is encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is usually held in the spring of each year. Notices for the AGM are published or sent out by email three weeks in advance of the meeting.
(**NOTE: As per current by-laws of Labdara Foundation and LCAT/Lietuviu Namai: current bona fide members of LCAT are automatically also members of Labdara Foundation.)


Becoming a Board Member

Members of the Labdara Foundation Board of Directors are members in good standing of the Lithuanian community who are members of the Labdara Foundation and have been elected to serve on the Board by the Foundation’s membership at an Annual General Meeting (AGM).
To serve on the Labdara Board of Directors, you must be a member of either Labdara Foundation or the Lithuanian Community Association of Toronto (Toronto Lietuvių Namai).  You must meet the eligibility standard set in the Conflict of Interest Policy of Labdara Foundation, and you must provide a clear Vulnerable Sector Police Check from the municipality in which you reside.

Applications are vetted per conflict-of-interest rules for Boards of Directors  and submitted to the Nominations Committee in advance of the AGM.   The Nominations Committee or the Board of Directors may request an interview or additional information before presenting the application for a vote at a Board Directors’ meeting to accept or deny the application. If accepted by a Board of Directors vote, the applicant then becomes a nominee and stands for election at the AGM. If the Labdara Foundation membership votes in favour of the nominee, the applicant becomes a Director on the Board of the Labdara Foundation and serves their three-year term. Board meetings are held monthly.
