CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Becoming a board member is a considerable commitment. We expect all board members to: 1) attend board meetings; (80%) 2) Review board packets ahead of time; 3) Be active on one of three committees for 3 months before coming on a board (Business, Advancement or Client Services); 4) Financially support Hope Clinic; 5) Introduce Hope Clinic to their 'sphere of influence' and; 6) attend our flagship events: Gala and Cider Carols. Finally, we also expect our board members to be aligned with our faith (Christian) and mission, vision and values. Board Members are vetted from our current donor and volunteer base as well as recommendations from staff, other board members, volunteers, partnering churches and agencies. It is also our aim to have a diverse board that matches the diversity of our client base. Although this has been difficult to achieve at times, it is something we are committed to achieving. Board member terms are two years, and while there is no term limit, execution of expectations are reviewed by the Board Chair at the end of each person's term to determine if they are still in good standing to seek another term.We also have an advisory board comprised largely of former board members who like to stay engaged with Hope Clinic but in a broader sense. They meet with the CEO regularly and come together as a group and meet with the Board Chair and CEO twice a year. This has been effective to ensure we preserve the integrity of our foundation while meeting the current needs of clients as they evolve.
