Here's what to expect
--CCHI Board Member applications are accepted each year from January 1 - July 31.
--Once an application is submitted, we will be in touch within 4 weeks,
--Our approach to Board Member recruitment is collaborative. It is important for us to get to know you, and for you to get to know us! Because of our approach, we ask interested applicants to hold interviews with a small number of Board Members and attend at least one full Board Meeting prior to expressing final interest.
--If you remain interested and there is a mutual interest in proceeding, a board member will nominate you at the next calendared board meeting for full board approval.
--Board-approved applicants will then be placed on the slate at CCHI’s Annual Membership Meeting in November for the membership to vote on final approval.
This timeline could shift as need arises for filling vacancies on the board or recruiting for specific skill sets.
