Call for Nominations - NDC Board of Directors
Founded in 1968, the Neighborhood Design Center is a nonprofit organization that facilitates the development of healthy, equitable neighborhoods through community-engaged design and planning services. By providing the tools, expertise, and partnerships necessary to realize neighborhood visions, we support broad participation in the evolution of the built environment.

As the organization prepares to enter its 50th year, NDC is interested in identifying potential new Board of Directors through this call for nominations and encourages self-nominations. As part of its effort to broaden its board, NDC seeks to have a diverse Board of Directors based on race, gender, background, skills, and experience.

The term for a Board of Director is three (3) years, and can be renewed for another three-year term. A slate of candidates for election to the Board will be presented to the full Board in May 2018.

General Responsibilities:

+ Understand NDC’s mission, history, constituencies, projects, and core values.
+ Attend and participate in Board meetings (6 per year), committees and activities.
+ Be an advocate for NDC, its Mission, programs and accomplishments.
+ Help identify potential opportunities for new projects, partnerships, supporters and volunteers.
+ Support the chapter financially by participating in fundraising including: soliciting volunteers, sponsors, donors, or by making a personal contribution.

Interested in learning more about NDC, serving as a volunteer, or serving on a Board Committee but not ready to commit to joining the Board of Directors? As NDC prepares for its 50th Anniversary, there are many opportunities for community members and leaders to get involved with the organization beyond joining the Board. Please contact Board President, Evan Richardson (board@ndc-md.org) or Executive Director Jennifer Goold (jgoold@ndc-md.org) with questions or to learn more about potential opportunities.
