Nominations & Voting

The CLC Board of Directors provides governance and oversight for CLC operations and initiatives. The role of each Board member is to act in the best interest of the organization as a whole and to exercise the legal and financial duties of stewardship. It is vital to the growth and success of the organization that strong and committed individuals are elected to leadership positions. 

CLC follows a best practice approach to board elections, in which the Nominating Committee undertakes a formal process to review candidates and develop a final recommended slate to present to the membership.  This slate of candidates includes one recommended individual for each available position. 

All Child Life Council Board of Directors candidates must accept certain responsibilities and possess key qualifications to be considered for a position on the Board. General information about all Board of Directors positions are outlined on the Board Position Information page. For the elections in 2016, there are five available positions: President-Elect, Secretary,  two Director positions, and Child Life Certifying Committee (CLCC) Chair-Elect.

Detailed position descriptions are available for review.
