BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Recruitment & Nomination Information

CTN seeks a diverse group of professionals, government and foundation executives, public service, business executives and/or community leaders, who will bring access and influence to CTN. All board members are expected to use their access and influence to support the growth and development of the organization. Candidates must have a commitment to the mission and values of CTN in order to make a difference in the lives of people and their communities. They must also be committed to supporting CTN in making its Board of Directors representative and inclusive of the entire community, including people of varied ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and physical abilities.

Candidates must have good interpersonal skills, patience, a sense of humor, a willingness to learn, and must be able to participate in and sustain collaborative group efforts. Board members are expected to donate or raise $1,000 annually in financial support for CTN. This amount can be reached through direct donation, hosting fundraising parties, securing matching funds, or through introductions with major donors and foundations.

THE SELECTION PROCESS

Candidates should first contact either the Executive Director or a Board Member to arrange an informal meeting of introduction after which a recommendation will be made to the full Board about an invitation to a Committee meeting. A follow-up call/meeting will be arranged with the candidate to address questions and concerns, after which a nomination will be presented to the full Board. Candidates will be notified of the result immediately following this process.

This is an excellent opportunity to foster the growth and development of an emerging nonprofit organization devoted to improving quality of life for an underserved community via technology. Men and women, people of color, ethnic minorities, physically challenged, candidates of diverse sexual orientation and/or gender expression and other minority candidates are strongly encouraged to pursue Board service with CTN.
