The Residents

The Residents

from the community are participants at all levels in the governance structure. They are part of the Stewardship Group where strategic decisions are made regarding the 1000 Voices and are also part of the constellations that develop outcomes for specific issues and/or populations. The North of McKnight Residents Committee is the supporting organization for resident members.

The Constellations

The Constellations

are self-governing action-teams that bring residents and organizations together to identify desired outcomes for the group or issue and work towards solutions. Constellations report to the Stewardship Group to keep the collaborative informed about the activities in the constellation.

Constellations will come and go as needs and/or issues are met and identified. Constellation can be initiated by residents, organization or community groups.

Currently the following constellations are active:

Constellation Chairs    
Aboriginal Constellation:   Charlotte McLeod & Joanne Pinnow
Children and Families Constellation:   Tanis Cochrane
Newcomers Constellation:   Jaime Enachescu
Seniors Constellation:   Lalita Singh
Women’s Constellation:   Lalita Singh & Diane Altwasser
Youth Constellation:   Lexie Sobat & Jason Klinck
The Collaborative

The Collaborative

is a group of service organizations that have signed a a Memorandum of Understanding to work together with the community in 1000 Voices and will respond to the needs that have been identified in the community.

The Trustee Agency

The Trustee Agency (Aspen Family and Community Network Society)

is assigned both the legal and financial responsibilities of the collaborative. The Stewardship Group provides the direction and oversight to the Trustee Agency. The Trustee Agency is chosen from among the members of the collaborative and will perform most of the administrative duties.

The Stewardship Group

The Stewardship Group

provides oversight and makes strategic decisions for 1000 Voices; not unlike a traditional Board of Directors. The membership of the Stewardship Group is made up of 10 members, four residents from the community, four representatives from the collaborative, and two standing members, The Trustee Agency (Aspen Family and Community Network Society and United Way of Calgary and Area. The Stewardship Group also functions as a central information point of the work of the constellations, but has no authority over the constellations.
