Board of Directors
The Charles County Arts Alliance (CCAA) is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. CCAA Board members lead our nonprofit organization and manage its day-to-day operations. The Board of Directors is a “hands-on” Board with many duties and responsibilities to keep the CCAA “trains running on time” throughout the year. Over the past year (FY 2017), our very dedicated CCAA Board members donated over 2800 hours of their free time to ensure the successful achievement of our organization’s goals, objectives and arts programs!
Our all-volunteer CCAA Board of Directors is comprised of the following positions:
- Vice President
- Past President
- Directors (up to 9)
All Board members are elected by the membership for two-year terms of office. Elections take place during the CCAA Annual Membership Meeting held in May during odd-numbered years. In preparation for the Board elections, a Nominating Committee is formed for the purpose of managing the recruitment process for prospective Board members. In the event of intermittent Board vacancies taking place during the two-year term, the positions are filled with the approval of the current Board of Directors. Potential Board members must be CCAA members in good standing (i.e., dues paid) for active consideration.
Meetings of the CCAA Board of Directors take place on a monthly basis throughout the year, including two Board all-day retreats for in-depth planning and assessment. Board members are expected to attend Board meetings/retreats, lead or serve on at least one CCAA standing committee, and actively participate in CCAA projects and events held throughout the year. As such, serving on the CCAA Board of Directors requires a great deal of time, commitment and dedication to be effective.
