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 2017, there are four available positions: President-Elect, Treasurer, and two Director positions.

Detailed position descriptions are available for review.


To nominate another CLC member (or to put forward your own name), please send a message to, providing the candidate’s name and contact information (including a current email address and work telephone number). Be sure to indicate the office(s) for which the nominee should be considered: President-Elect, Treasurer, or Director. The Nominating Committee recommends that you contact any individual you intend to nominate before submitting his or her name, but if preferred you may request that your nomination remain anonymous. The CLC office will follow up with all nominees to confirm their intent to be considered further by the committee. Nominations must be received by CLC by December 10, 2016.
