As the North Okanagan Therapeutic Riding Association (NOTRA) approaches our annual general meeting on March 15, we are seeking to add some key individuals from the local professional community to our board and leadership team.
This is an incredibly impactful organization doing meaningful things for those with special needs in our community. We are asking that you consider NOTRA and see if volunteering for our organization might be a valuable way for you to contribute your time and talent to benefit those in need.
NOTRA is a non-profit registered charity incorporated in 1984 and operating out of the Historic O’Keefe Ranch north of Vernon. NOTRA provides therapeutic horseback riding lessons to children and adults with special needs, enriching their lives and expanding their potential. We’ve seen first words, first smiles, emotional burdens lifted and physical goals that were previously thought unattainable met or exceeded. The joy and freedom experienced by those whose lives have been so restricted that are given the freedom to connect with, ride and “control” such a large animal is palpable and electric and touches the lives of volunteers and staff nearly as much as the rider themselves.
For NOTRA to provide such joy and physical benefit to its special needs riders, we need a passionate, talented and dedicated team behind the scenes to ensure those in direct contact with the riders can continue their vital work.
For an organization such as NOTRA to thrive, expand and achieve our maximum potential in our current financial climate, we need to find individuals who are looking to share their gifts in leadership, administration, organization, public/media relations, financial planning, etc. who are well connected in the community.
