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.
For the 2017 election, the CLC Nominating Committee will consider all candidates whose names were put forward during the nominations process. In order to be eligible for consideration, a candidate must be a Certified Child Life Specialists and a CLC member in good standing, with demonstrated leadership abilities and a history of active engagement in the organization and/or the child life profession. For more information about the skills and attributes of a desirable candidate for the Board of Directors, please refer to Criteria/Attributes for CLC Board Members.
2017 Board of Directors Positions & Responsibilities
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.
The Nominating Committee will select an individual for each available position to recommend to the CLC membership for approval in the early spring. If you have any questions about the process, please contact Ramona Spencer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
