The Community Development Society wants you! The following positions are up for election:
- Vice President of Operations
- A 3-year term that moves into Vice President of Program and President
- Three seats on the Board of Directors
- A 3-year term
Nominees for these positions can expect to meet (remotely) on a monthly basis to direct the operations of the Society. Committee leadership roles are typically assigned to each Board member. The Board typically meets in person twice each year—late November/early December at the site of the upcoming annual conference; and at the annual conference (generally held in July). There is no compensation provided and the cost of traveling for the two in person meetings is borne by the member (some exceptions have been made for traveling to the mid-year meeting, but attendance at the annual conference is expected).
The operations of the Society are supported by a professional management firm. A current roster of the Board of Directors and Officers can be found at http://www.comm-dev.org/about-us/board-of-directors. Please contact any of them to discuss in more detail what the responsibilities and rewards of being involved with CDS are.
