Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is made up entirely of volunteers, who commit to a three year term. Board members are generally elected from within committee membership after displaying leadership and dedication to CLCC’s vision and mission.
Members of the three committees come from the Board of Directors and from volunteers like you. Each committee (Fundraising, Finance, Program) has a particular focus with its own goals and strategies. The members of each committee schedule a regular meeting time – often once per month – and elect a leader to report back in the monthly Board meeting.
Interfacing between CLCC and the public, the Fundraising Committee strives to tell the CLCC story while raising funds. This dual purpose is complimentary, as an informed and convinced public is also a generous and supportive public. Currently, the focus is on fundraising events and writing a fundraising plan.
Ensuring a healthy financial standing is a critical task of the Finance Committee. Accurate and transparent accounting provides confidence in CLCC as a sound community investment. Budgets, financial reports, policy development and tax reporting all form the basis of its work.
Representing the heart of our organization, the Program Committee is planning and shaping the future for our community. Emphasis is on the creation of housing, job and lifestyle options for residents. One current focus is on coordinating program and educational activities, primarily at the CLCC greenhouse and Coventry property, which breathe life into our vision.
