Telephone Aid Line Kingston (TALK) is a crisis, distress, befriending and information phone line serving all members of the Kingston community. We are entirely volunteer run, including all phone line volunteers, Executive Assembly positions, and Board of Directors. TALK is also a member of Distress and Crisis Ontario (DCO).
TALK’s board of directors hold a minimum tenure of one year, with a maximum of four. They meet with the Executive Director on a monthly basis. Currently, due to COVID-19, all meetings occur electronically over Zoom. Otherwise, meetings are held in-person near the Queen's University campus. In between meetings, the Executive Director provides e-mail updates on financial and organizational matters. Currently, TALK has five Board of Directors with staggered tenures. We are currently seeking two additional Board members. The Board currently operates as a whole rather than in committees, with the Executive Director acting as chair.
