Join the WCHC Board
The Board of Directors is the governing body of WCHC. It is legally responsible for the overall management and conduct of the Corporation. The Board hires the Executive Director, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of WCHC.
WCHC Directors are responsible for:
- Setting organizational policies.
- Doing long-range planning.
- Approving strategic priorities.
Board members must:
- Commit to learning about WCHCâ€™s programs and services.
- Reflect the needs of communities served by WCHC in their decision-making.
- Prepare for, attend and actively participate in Board meetings.
A Directorâ€™s term of office is three years. Directors may serve a maximum of three terms (nine years total). Each Board member must take part in at least one standing or ad hoc committee of the Board.
Community residents can be involved with the WCHC Board as a Director. You can also be a community representative on one of the Boardâ€™s standing committees: Finance, Quality, or Nominating. Being a community representative on a committee is a great introduction to a future role as a Director. Recruitment for new Directors typically begins in January/February of each year. New community representatives for Board Committees are usually recruited in June/July of every year.
