Local individuals, organizations, businesses and governments looking to help positively shape the future of Oxford County have an opportunity to join the conversation.

Future Oxford is looking for up to 15 new members to take up the role of thought partners-- volunteers who will help advance the Future Oxford Plan through collaboration, education and promotion. The group is seeking those who have experience and expertise in areas such as agriculture, education, energy, healthcare, small business ownership, technology, waste diversion, sense of belonging and more.

An information package for prospective members and the membership application form are available on the Future Oxford website at Applications must be submitted to by Friday, June 18, 2021.

Future Oxford members should reflect the diversity of Oxford County. Applications from under-represented communities, persons with disabilities, people from rural areas, and those of different ages, income levels, gender identities, geographic locations, ethno-cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Through their work Future Oxford volunteers will contribute to shaping and advancing the next iteration of the Future Oxford Plan, which will continue to help build an Oxford where communities, economies, and environments thrive together.

While work over the past six years has focused on 100% renewable energy, zero waste, zero poverty, community wellbeing, supporting entrepreneurs, workforce ready businesses and people, wetlands restoration and more, new members will work to determine what today’s priorities are to best shape our communities, economies, and environments of tomorrow.

From 2015 to 2020, the work of more than 150 volunteers and partners contributed more than 3,500 hours of work aimed at poverty reduction, promoting food and agri-business and supporting youth, entrepreneurial programs and more. The Future Oxford Legacy Fund, established in 2016, has created and maintained more than 150 jobs with $649,000 in loans and $29,000 in grants.
