Board of Directors Corner

We need YOU
The Board of Directors and the CTC Management Team invite you to join us and become a member of the Board of Directors! Becoming a Board Member is a wonderful opportunity to share your own experience and expertise with all the residents here at CTC. As a board member, you would work closely with the management team at CTC, helping to shape policy and drive the growth of CTC; your ideas and decisions will have a direct and positive impact on the community, now and into the future.
It is a great resume booster to be able to say that you have been a “Board Director” for a diverse organization with a $4 million operating budget. The experience you will gain discussing issues, debating issues, and reaching a consensus that is beneficial to the entirety of the co-op will give you great insight into how organizations are run; giving you an edge when looking for employment.
You would be an asset to the board of directors if you have interest or experience in ANY of the following areas: families, management, policy, finance, volunteering, social work, international affairs, politics, science, children, law, public health, languages, engineering, diversity, green living, communications, organizational behavior, or community programs.
The board member job description and application is available online. Have any additional questions? Feel free to stop in to meet with General Manager, Hadley Adkins for details of the work of the board or email You could also talk to any of our current Board Members who would be glad to share with you some of the great experiences they have had on the board.
Please submit applications by emailing them to
All CTC members in good standing can be a board member (You don’t have to be a student to join.)
Board members meet one evening each month for 1 ½ hours (some additional time is requested for additional events) Board members generally serve a two-year term.
